In the U.S., I was told to take Synthroid 30 min. BEFORE breakfast. Here in Japan I'm told to take Thyradin-S (their levothyroxine) AFTER breakfast.
Levothyroxine: Food, especially hot liquids, can disrupt absorption. That is fairly well established. The most important part, however, is consistency. If it is inconvenient to take it on an empty stomach, such that you are missing doses, take it at a consistent time and then let your doctor adjust the dose. ...Read more
Yes: Generic synthroid is called levothyroxine. Taking generic version is reasonable and will likely achivevsimilar results, however I would recommend that you inform your endocrinologist about such switch as you may need to have your thyroid levels checked soon (a few weeks) after making the switch to ensure your dosing is appropriate. I would also recommend that you adhere to one kind of preparation. ...Read more

Can overdose: If the synthroid (thyroxine) is not prescribed for the child, the child can have an overdose which can be dangerous. Synthroid (thyroxine) (thyroid medication) can increase the thyroid levels. Good thing if your level is low; bad thing if your child's level is normal and she takes an adult dose. Keep all meds out of reach of children! ...Read more
About 1/2: If you mean you take 88 mcg every other day then your dose is 1/2 the strength or 44 mcg-50 mcg. It depends how many times during the week you take it. ...Read more

Yes: Thyroxine is best absorbed into the body if it is taken on an empty stomach with no other medications or supplements, and you wait at least 40 min to eat. The alternative is to take it at least 2 hrs after you have eaten, and again wait 40 minutes before eating. You are always better off taking the thyroxine later in the day if you forgot to take it in the morning rather than skipping the dose. ...Read more
Weird question: Hi. If I understand, you mean what would happen if a person without hypothyroidism takes Synthroid (thyroxine)? If a non-hypothyroid person took a high enough dose, it would make the person hyperthyroid. A very low dose could be accommodated because the pituitary would adjust TSH secretion to adjust endogenous thyroid function downward to account for the added exogenous thyroid hormone. But why do you ask? ...Read more
Thyroxine: If you take 88 mcg every other day, then your daily dose is 44 mcg/day. The pill doesn't come in 44 mcg so if we ever need this, we typically just go with the 50 mcg pill daioy instead. ...Read more
Weeks: You may start to feel a difference in 1-2 weeks, but you need to give a new dosage 6 weeks before rechecking thyroid blood levels. ...Read more
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?
No: It's a long acting med. The level only drops if you stop taking the med. As long as you take it daily, the level is sustained. ...Read more
What to do if I was feeling better when I started to take Synthroid (thyroxine) and now I feel terrible. What happened?
Absolutely NONE: So called "armour" thyroid is garbage, it's ground up pigs. It's not even standardized on the basis of thyroid hormone content. T3 (liothyronine) is short-lived in your system and potentially dangerous. It's also impossible to check levels in your blood. Stick w/brand name T4 replacement and make sure your levels are normal. Your symptoms may are probably not due to the thyroid medication. ...Read more
