My endocrinologist prescribed 50 mg of Levothyroxine ~ pharmacist told me to take one hour before breakfast. Well, my husband sometimes has to get up at 3 a.m. For work, sometimes 6 a.m. I have been diligent in waking up to take the pill ~ which I have been on for less than a month. The last couple of mornings, I have bad pain in my upper abdominal area for an hour or so after taking the pill. Don't know if it is related... But, I am switching to bedtime now that I know it can be taken at night! Why the doctors/pharmacist do not share this info is beyond me!
So thrilled to have found your site...I have had so many questions answered in reading just today ~ such as, could I take the pill at night, how many hours after eating, etc. I also had a fibromatosis issue... Amazing, never thought I was hypo until one day I got up and could hardly function. The fatigue was unbelievable and the brain fog, too. However, my 22 month pregnancy belly was unreal ~ within 3 months, I gained 40 lbs and was not eating any differently. After less than a month on the medicine, I notice a slight improvement in my energy level ~ no other improvements. I know ~ improvement(s) could take 6 to 12 weeks or longer.
Will let you know if taking the medicine at bedtime alleviates the upper stomach pain.
So excited and grateful for your site... Thank you, again & again!
