This was just prescribed today.  Will return for a thyroid test in 3 months. Something new to investigate, anyone using this?

I have been taking it for about 5 years.  The only thing I have to remember is to take it before any other medicine.  It should be taken on an empty stomach and then let it work for about 20 minutes before eating anything else including other pills.

Sounds like my first cup of coffee and the morning news. 

From what I understand, no coffee either.

 

I usually have to use the bathroom in the night around 3AM so I take it then and go back to sleep.

RX said, no coffee, AVG, or lemon water.  just straight water. Guess it will be next to the bed in the morning.  90 day script.

Sometimes I do wake at night.   first morning I was bored for 30 minutes in bed.  Today I got up and updated my PC.  I know I have to give it a week, but I think it is helping my BP.

I left word to my doctor, wondering if I can take this before sleeping?   I stop foods 2 hours before sleeping.  this would work better for me.
