How early is too early to take Synthroid (thyroxine) in the morning?

Never too early: Thyroid replacement medications should be taken once daily. It doesn't really matter when during the day you take them--the medications have very long half lives. This means that the drug's level in your body won't fluctuate very much depending on when during the day you take the pill. ...Read more

HYPOTHYROIDISM: HYPOTHYROIDISM can cause a myriad of symptoms. In women it can cause weight gain /fatigue/dysfunctional uterine bleeding resulting in a secondary anemia. I have better success with Armour thyroid and try to get TSH<1. Additionally Cytomel(T3) can be added. Also gluten free diet(WHOLEAPPROACH .COM) also Topamax (topiramate) at bedtime can be addedGet your levels checked regularly and follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

Can you take thyroxine later in the day if you forgot to take it in the morning ?

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

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

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

I always forget to take thyroxine right after awaking in the morning.what if i forget to take my tablet before breakfast.can i take it after breakfas?

Try This: I will recommend to patients that they take a pill out the night before and leave it on the nightstand with a glass of water. As most people will wake up before they actually get out of bed, you could take the medication when you open your eyes. By the time you are ready to get up and take on the day, it will likely be fine to have breakfast. Just a suggestion! ...Read more
