Yes, you can take both your Synthroid and Nexium together in the morning an hour before breakfast.  That is the best way to take them both.

Thank you...someone told me that synthroid was not supposed to be taken with Nexium because Nexium has antacid in it and that would block the benefit of the Synthroid. Not true I see...that is how misinformation gets passed around....
