I have been taking my Levothyroxine (100 mcg) and liothyronine (25mcg) when I awaken in the morning with a glass of water. I also consume coffee (2 cups total) with sugar and a little bit of milk during the first hour while getting ready for work. Is there enough calcium that it could be interacting with the levothyroxine? Or can I continue my normal morning routine? If not, what do you suggest? I need my coffee in the morning and I am not fond of drinking it black. I purposely started taking it upon awakening to avoid interactions with foods/drugs. I take the meds at 4:30 in the morning, only consuming coffee/sugar/milk until about 8. In the evening I take my multi-vitamin, potassium, and iron supplement around 7 before going to bed. Multi-vitamins upset my stomach in the morning because of lack of food in the belly, I prefer to take them after dinner and before bed. This is the first time being on these meds, so looking for suggestions and advice.
You should to take it and wait half an hour before you have anything else. Your stomach needs to be empty when you take the med and stay that way for half an hour. Thyroid meds need to be given alone too, no other medications should be taken at the time you take your thyroid meds.
