Interactions between your drugs
levothyroxine multivitamin with iron
Applies to: Synthroid (levothyroxine) and multivitamin with iron
Levothyroxine and multivitamin with iron should not be taken orally at the same time. Products that contain iron may interfere with the absorption of levothyroxine and reduce its effectiveness. You should separate the dosing of these medications by at least 2 to 4 hours if possible. Contact your doctor if your condition changes or you experience symptoms of hypothyroidism such as dry skin, weight gain, cold intolerance, weakness, muscle cramps or stiffness, slow pulse, or constipation. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Drug and food interactions
Applies to: Synthroid (levothyroxine)
The timing of meals relative to your levothyroxine dose can affect absorption of the medication. Therefore, levothyroxine should be taken on a consistent schedule with regard to time of day and relation to meals to avoid large fluctuations in blood levels, which may alter its effects. In addition, absorption of levothyroxine may be decreased by foods such as soybean flour, cotton seed meal, walnuts, dietary fiber, calcium, and calcium fortified juices. These foods should be avoided within several hours of dosing if possible. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
When levothyroxine is given during continuous enteral nutrition (tube feedings) for more than 7 days, the tube feeding should be interrupted for at least one hour before and one hour after the dose of levothyroxine. You may need more frequent blood tests to monitor levothyroxine levels.
