he has to stop eating and go the bathroom and have a bowel movement, is this a side effect or could there be something else wrong?
I would talk with the doctor about this. Diarrhea and vomiting are known possible side effects of levothyroxine so maybe his doctor can try something else or give you some ideas about when he could take the medication so as not to have his meals interrupted. Hope this helps.
