Brief Answer: Thyroid Detailed Answer: Thyroid medicine is best kept away from other food items, including lemon and honey. It is generally recommended to be taken with water 30-60 minutes before any food. Although it can also be taken at bedtime 4 hours after the last meal. This must be done consistently ie adhere to the same routine on a daily basis to ensure steady blood levels of thyroid medication. This will prevent fluctuations and get you the best results in terms of health benefits of optimal thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
