Levothroxine and lemon juice

Does having a glass of water with lemon juice in it (lemon juice detox therapy) interfere with my thyroid medication Levothroxine (levothyroxine)?

Always remember to take anything else about 2 hrs apart from meds.....Iron and calcium 4 hrs apart.  
Lemon juice I have never heard of it affecting your absorption of thyroid meds. I would take it 2 hrs apart anyway though just to keep the lemon acid apart from your body digesting your meds.
