I started taking 50 mcg levothryoxine in june of this year. I didnt' have any symptoms it wa found in my blood tests when I had my physical. i put off taking it because of the need to wait to take my other vitamins and such. I take the levothyroxine before I get in the shower in the morning and then because of the waiting to take the others I usually end up forgetting to take my vitamins because taking the levothyroxine has messed up my routine in the mornings. I hate it. So I'm thinking of changing it to take it at night, I have sent an email to my dr to see what she thinks about it.

    I hope that you don't mind my asking but why are you taking vitamins? Do you have a nutritional disorder?

    I am on levothyroxine as have had a total thyroidectomy. I had overactive thyroid prior to this. You should not be on this if overactive. What difference does it make if you take this at the same time as your vitamins?
