I am 38 years start taking the levothyroxine.. I felt headache because I stop drinking coffee because I need to stop this kind of habit. Do you think can affect if I drink coffee? Please I need your answer. thanks
No coffee, juice, tea, etc. as plain water is needed. About 8oz. This washes the pill into your stomach so it does not dissolve in the throat or get caught. I gulp it down. Sipping is not the method. The pill dissolves quickly and you would not get a proper dose with other things in the stomach. The half hour is needed for full absorption.
