Levoxyl (thyroxine) should be: taken separately on empty stomach first thing in the morning and then after 30 to 60 minutes later rest of the medicines and Breakfast should be taken. So that there is no interference for Thyroid medicine Absorption. Lansoprazole helps with Acid reflux so it should be taken in the morning also with breakfast.
