Can I change from taking synthroid (thyroxine) at night vs the morning? I take 50 mcg.

Can I change from taking synthroid (thyroxine) at night vs the morning?  I take 50 mcg.

Either: It is usually recommended that you take the medicine in the morning about an hour before eating. Fasting prior to the dose appears to be more important than whether it is taken in the morning or in the evening. Therefore nighttime is also fine. Hope this helps. ...Read more

If you take Synthroid (thyroxine) at night, do the levels of the drug not slowly decrease during the day?

If you take Synthroid (thyroxine) at night, do the levels of the drug not slowly decrease during the day?

Should be...oops :(: At 35 y/o if u have no other major med conds u should be fine. Synthroid (thyroxine) builds up slowly and stays a while. Not being perfect on timing is not a major concern. 525mcg in 1 day is a little<1/2 of what is in your body, a pretty big dose. U may feel get a jittery, shaky or have some palps. If sig sx's see your doc! Skip 2 doses & restart as usual. I must add, some try it for wt loss->very unsafe! ...Read more

Trying to conceive taking prenatal vitamins at night and now can't sleep. Have to take at night due to synthroid (thyroxine). Is this normal reaction to prenatals?

Trying to conceive taking prenatal vitamins at night and now can't sleep. Have to take at night due to synthroid (thyroxine). Is this normal reaction to prenatals?

Don't take at night!: This isn't exactly "normal" but not unheard of, as prenatal vits have B complex which can be stimulating & can cause insomnia. Just because you take synthroid (thyroxine) doesn't mean you have to take them at nite. One shouldn't take calcium at the same time but you can take it a few hours later- try the prenatal with lunch. You might need T3 too- see http://tinyurl.com/n4zmkro & http://tinyurl.com/pgvyeb8 ...Read more

Last night i had painful cramps in lower abdomen.The pain seemed to move with my bowel movement but stopped once i pooped.I take 75mcg Synthroid (thyroxine) daily?

If it is one: Episode of pain that resolved with a bowel movement, i would not worry. If this becomes a recurrent problem, however, you should consult with your doctor. It is not likely that your synthroid (thyroxine) has anything to do with it. ...Read more
