Has anyone taken their Levothyroxine at night instead of morning with any problems noticed or any benefits.  I think it would be more convenient for me.

    Hi

    I used to take mine in the morning - it fitted well with my routine - but I now know it can be much more effective if you take at night so I have switched. However its actually much more important to make sure you take your levo at least an hour away from food and especially dairy...so not even a drink with milk in. Hope this helps

    After over 20 years of taking Thyroxine in the morning and not feeling 100%, I heard years about people taking it at night and feeling a lot better. Even after taking it in the morning away from food/drink, I still wasn't feeling the effects (like I hadn't taken it all). Switched to the evening last week and I wished I had done it years ago, because the difference is remarkable - wake up feeling refreshed, more energy and my digestive system has improved greatly. Thyroxine is getting to work without any outside interference and everyone's metabolism/system is different.  I think I wake up already feeling better because it has worked its "magic" in the way nature intended - in normal circumstances you don't need a tablet to get going in the morning.
