Thyroid hormone should be taken on an empty stomach. So it should be taken at last 30 minutes before OR at least 2 hours after food or other medications.
Thyroid hormone should not be taken within four hours of any multivitamins or other supplements containing either calcium or iron.
If the person forgets to take the thyroid hormone pill on a particular day, it is OK to take a double dose the next day to make up for it.
