I've recently started taking Synthroid, and find it's been effective. My doctor and I suspected I've had hypothyroidism for a few years now, but it only recenltly showed up in my bloodwork. I still take Effexor in the morning along with my Synthroid.
I'm wondering what foods exactly I should avoid within the 4 hour "calcium restriction" after taking Synthroid - avoiding calcium, iron and high fibre is confusing. I'm not talking about supplements, I just want to be clear on food I should be avoiding, since I don't want to jeprodize the medication's effects.
Is it okay to put cream in my morning coffee? I'm not a morning person, and used to have yogart & fruit when I got to work, but now I often don't eat anything until lunch, as I'm nervous about what to eat (and I know that's not good for my metabolism!)
I would appreciate any advice you could give me! Thanks!
