the proper way to take levothyroxine
You'll get questions about the proper way to take levothyroxine.
For years, pharmacists and prescribers have told patients to take levothyroxine in the morning on an empty stomach...but this can be hard for some patients...and it's NOT necessary.
Yes, the package insert says to do this because levothyroxine is absorbed best on an empty stomach. But taking it at bedtime 4 hours after the last meal can work as well as taking it an hour before breakfast.
