Levothyroxine/ Fiber: Raisin Bran would be considered a high fiber food. Foods high in fiber could reduce the absorption of levothyroxine from your GI tract. Actually, levothyroxine should always be taken on an empty stomach so that a consistent amount of your prescribed dose is absorbed into your bloodstream.
