Taking Synthroid first thing in the AM is the standard. I take mine with about a 1 tsp of applesauce & a glass of room temperature water after crushing it up on a piece of wax paper (I have trouble swallowing.) Then I allow at least an hour before eating anything else especially dairy. The calcium in dairy binds with Synthroid & isn't absorbed.

My cousin takes Synthroid at her evening meal & has done this for at least 20 yrs. I'm sure she is on a higher dose than she needs because of the time she takes it with other foods which delay absorption & cause the drug to interact with other chemicals such as calcium.

I had trouble taking Synthroid at first too when I tried to take it without any food. The package insert says it can be taken with applesauce. Fam
