In brief: Levothyroxine

It's recommended to take thyroxine early in AM at least one hour prior to breakfast.
There is a study that shows Levothyroxine taken at bedtime significantly improved thyroid hormone levels. Quality-of-life variables and plasma lipid levels showed no significant changes with bedtime vs morning taking.
