How long should you wait after taking Synthroid, a medication for low thyroid, to take vitamins?

I know there is something about Synthroid where you are supposed to wait a certain amount of hours before taking certain vitamins. Does anyone know the vitamins and/or how long you have to wait?

This is NOT a question anyone on here should answer.

Even if a doctor or pharmacist is a member, they do not know anything about the other meds you are taking.

Call you pharmacist. He/she will know.

Take your vitamins or other supplements at least 4 hours after taking Synthroid.

If I had to guess, try multivitamins. Wait about three hours.

Your best bet would be to call your doctor and ask him/her when to take vitamins and what kinds may interfere with your meds.
Synthroid is too important to mess up. My boss has to take this medication because of an operation she had a couple of years ago and was slack about taking it until she realized how exhausted she was without it.
Take care of yourself and I hope your doctor can help you out with this.
