GERD - I have been prescribed to take sucralfate and pantoprazole for acid reflux & Barrets disease also I take levothroid. Each requires long periods before eating and before taking another drug.
Interactions between your selected drugs
levothyroxine ↔ sucralfate
Applies to: Levothroid (levothyroxine), sucralfate
Limited clinical data suggest that sucralfate may interfere with the absorption of thyroid hormone in some patients. The clinical significance of this interaction is unknown. Administering sucralfate twice a day instead of four times a day and separating thyroid supplements from sucralfate by eight hours may avoid a potential interaction. The patient's clinical response should be monitored.
No other interactions were found between your selected drugs.
Note: this does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. ALWAYS consult with your doctor or pharmacist.

Applies to: Levothroid (levothyroxine)
ADJUST DOSING INTERVAL: Consumption of certain foods as well as the timing of meals relative to dosing may affect the absorption of T4 thyroid hormone (i.e., levothyroxine). T4 absorption is increased by fasting and decreased by foods such as soybean flour (e.g., infant formula), cotton seed meal, walnuts, dietary fiber, calcium, and calcium fortified juices.
MANAGEMENT: Preparations containing T4 thyroid hormone should be administered on a consistent schedule with regard to time of day and relation to meals so as to avoid large fluctuations in serum levels. Foods that may affect T4 absorption should be avoided within several hours of dosing if possible.
