Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Taking thyroid tablets along with Sucralfate is not advisable. It will reduce the absorption of above drugs. Use thyroid tablets 1 hour before antacid intake.

I hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any further questions.
