Euthyrox

Hi

I am taking Euthyrox for a underactive thyroid. I have been told not to take my Marvelon at the same time (to take later) as it could have an effect on the Euthyrox.

Would you please let me know if I would be able to take Centrum vit with the Euthyrox or would that also have an effect on the medication?

Estrogen-containing products (including birth control pills) may indeed interact with your Euthyrox. Vitamins containing calcium carbonate and/or ferrous sulphate should be taken at leats 4 hours apart from euthyrox.

Taking euthyrox to treat under active thyroid. Currently 7 weeks pregnant and also taking centrum multi vitamins. Will that affect the absorption of the medication by me taking multi vitamins?
