She needs to take the levo thyroxine first thing in the morning, on a completely empty stomach with no other pills with a glass of water. Then wait an hour before she takes anything else. Lansoprazole can hinder absorption if its taken together. The thyroid med has to be taken half an hour before anything else no matter what the medication she's on.
As far as the bp, lansopraxole has a rare side effect of high blood pressure. Has she talked to her dr about it?
