Prenatal Vitamins
Hi.  Can I take a prenatal over the counter vitamin while I'm on Synthroid?  I'm already taking 200 mcg. Synthroid.  I take the Synthroid at 4:30-5:30am & the vitamin of any kind at 1-2pm with lunch.  I'm still so confused about any absorption issues.....

P.S. Prenatal Vitamins with the extra iron & calcium

As far as I  know you can take any vitamins you want while on synthroid.  

I have another 2 weeks that I can start taking my multivitamins/mineral (lifepak from Pharmanex) since my RAI.  I was told I have to wait 1 month after the RAI then I can start taking them again.

Good luck!

Cheers,
Scott

Your good.  Just keep them spaced a couple of hours apart.  I take my Synthroid in the morning as soon as I get up and all my other pills and vitamins before bed.  As long as you give it a couple of hours (especially with calcium or iron) you are good to go.

I take Miralax laxative and they ask I space out by 2hrs.  Having fun doing that now along with Acidophollus (prevent yeast infection while on Levaquin antibiotic).  

I am afraid of missing something somewhere along the day LOL!

I take my Synthroid @ 6:00 AM

I have been on synthriod for almost 4 months, but just took Prenatals for the first time this week. Even though I take synthroid at 6am, and the prenatals at 6pm, I got extremelty nauseated and felt terrible for the entire day. Is this related or does my body need to adjust?
