Dear XXXXXXX
Taking honey and lemon one after taking thyroid tablets wont have any effect on absorption of thyroid tablets. You can safely do it. Remember not to take coffee or milk immediately after taking thyroid tablets. If you are taking calcium or iron tablets there has to be a 4 hour gap between them and thyroid tablets.
With regards,
