Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Serine deficiency has been implicated with fibromyalgia and also psychological symptoms.

L-Serine should be started 500 mg daily and taken in the morning about an hour afetr taking thyroid pill on empty stomach.

You can increase L serine dose by 500 mg every week upto 2 grams daily.

Vitamin A and CoQ10 can be taken together daily before lunch time.

Calcium interferes with absorption of these supplements.

Hence calcium should be taken 2 hours after lunch daily.
Best wishes,
