Yes: These are all safe to take daily. Levothyroixine should be on empty stomach in morning. I advise prenatal, biotin and CoQ10 after breakfast, then fish oil after lunch or dinner. Magnesium (best as glycinate or taurate) best in evening at least 2 hours after dinner. Take a quality prenatal, ideally one with the L-5-MTHF form of folate (folic acid) (Pure Encapsulations and Designs For Health make great ones).
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

While this is a good program, I advise everyone to supplement with additional - 5-8000 iu/day of Vit D3 in fall and winter months. You may not need to if you spend enough time in the mid-day sun from April to Sept. without sunscreen. Your prenatal will have some D but not enough, esp. for fall and winter.
