Synthroid and Grapefruit

I take my Synthroid first thing in the morning and was wondering, if I have a grapefruit in the afternoon will it be okay? I thought I heard that grapefruit can affect the absorption of some medication (I thought one was Synthroid) but I'm not sure if they mean if I take it at the same time or within a few hours of each other. Anyone know of the correlation and if eating grapefruit in the afternoon should be fine?

" I think as long as you wait 1 hour after taking the medicine you're safe. I eat grapefruit often and I take synthorid so if you're waiting till the afternoon I don't think there is any problems. "
