Synthroid needs to be taken on an empty stomach, alone and take the other medications later on...

what happens when you have too much T3 ?

i will try the cytomel in the am then the other half at noon, but is it OK to take Cytomel with the Synthroid at eh same time?

and when I take the other half of the Cytomel at noon, do I have to wait to eat or drink?

I really appreciate your replying, I have been having a hard time withthis and my dr. is kinda confusing when I ask questions-I don't seem to get any answers---
