There is no interaction between these supplements and the medications that you listed.

HOWEVER, there are possible issues if the supplements were taken at the same time with the levothyroxine, that the medication might not be fully absorbed.

For this reason, I would advise against taking the supplement and your medications at the same time. You can of course take the supplement at a different time of the day without concern about this potential problem.
