Synthroid in p.m.

Hi all~

I have been reading lately about better results when taking Synthroid at bedtime instead of in the morning.  I am on 100 mcg of Synthroid and TSH is at 1, but still having some symptoms.  I was just wondering if anybody takes meds at night and if you have seen better results.

Thank you.

But research reported in the journal Clinical Endocrinology found that taking the same dose of levothyroxine (i.e., Synthroid) at bedtime, as compared to first thing in the morning, might be better.

The small pilot study was prompted by observation that some patients had improved thyroid hormone profiles improved after they switched from taking their levothyroxine in the morning, to bedtime. The purpose was to look at the impact on thyroid hormone profiles by changing the time levothyroxine was taken from early morning to bedtime.
