Hi, I'm 20 years old and I've recently been prescribed a small dose of Eutroxsig (a 50mg tablet per day). My blood tests showed I was showing decrease in my TSH and I'm apparently showing symptoms that could potentially turn into thyroditis one day, though I'm wondering if these symptoms could also be due to my poor sleep schedule, diet and lack of exercise.
Anyway, I've been taking it about a week and am seeing my doctor again early September but it's kind of a hassle of having to wait an hour before eating or drinking anything other than water when I wake up (which, by the way my doctor didn't tell me a thing about, I only knew when the pharmacist gave them to me and she actually said half an hour, so I'm confused). I can manage, however, but I just noticed on the box a few days in that it said "Do not take dairy products within two hours of taking this medication" and the few days prior I'd had a coffee (with milk) an hour after I'd taken the tablet. I'm wondering how much this dairy rule applies. I know the absorption of the pill decreases with calcium and such but would it be alright after an hour? I kind of miss my morning coffee.
