OT: Calcium & magnesium Supplements

Hi all!

I know that this isn't really thyroid related, but I've gotten no response over on the nutrition board and so many of you are so knowledgeable on a wide variety of topics.  When I had my TT in August you we life savers!
So here it goes:

I have read a lot of conflicting information, and I was wondering if you were supposed to take calcium(w/ vit. D)
TOGETHER with Magnesium or if they should be spread apart?  

Thank you

p.s. I know that they need to be 4 hours on either side of synthroid I was just wondering about each other.

Hmm, interesting question..  My "guess" would be that you can take them together.  Multivitamins have calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D all together.  So logically, you can take them at the same time.

I take my calcium, B 12, and Vit D all together.  Some of my calcium also contains magnesium.  I think you are fine doing them all together.

i'm going to continue to take them together.
there aren't enough hours in the day to space out all of my supplements & my synthroid.
