I'm on Toprol and Synthroid daily. Can I drink grapefruit juice with these?

Juice
Grapefruit juice doesn't affect toprol. Synthroid is best taken on an empty stomach in the morning, an hour before meals.

I take synthroid in am before breakfast. Are there any foods I should be avoiding? What about Lemon water , grapefruit, walnuts , milk, any worries?

Synthroid

Levothyroxine
You should wait about an hour after you take your synthroid or it won't be properly absorbed. You may be better off taking it at bed-time - about an hour after a snack. Your food and drink list sounds just fine.

Can I eat black walnuts while taking synthroid? I usually wait an hour after taking it to eat anything but I am confused as to whether it's ok to eat

Wait an hour.

Levothyroxine
Since some foods interfere with the efficient absorption of thyroid hormone, it is best to adopt the general rule of waiting an hour after a dose of Synthroid before eating.
