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?
