I believe the rule is 30 minutes before a meal and 1-2 hours after a meal. I have been on thyroid meds for over 30 years and never knew tjis until I joined this site. Hope this helps

I am so sorry I didn't answer you question. It has something to due with the absorption of the medication. Sorry I can not be more helpful I am sure someone will be able to answer this question with more information than this
Thanks Barb

Food may interfere with the absorption and you may not get the benefit of the full dose.
