Customer Question
I have been taking...

I have been taking thyroid replacement for many years and only just noticed that I should wait 4 hours before ingesting calcium after taking the med on an empty stomach. Typically I take the pils about an hour before breakfast. Now I have osteoporosis and my labs sometimes show too much calcium. Please help me decide when to take the med.

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

No nausea but the dx of Osteoprosis is since 2 years

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Mitral valve prolapse and recently gall stones were detected. come to think of it I have discomfort often after eating which I have treated with antacid

Well your research is correct . You should take thyroxine and calcium supplements atleast 4-6 hours apart for them not interact .

So you need to take calcium near noon while taking thyroxine before breakfast on empty stomach .

Please let me know if you have any further queries

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
