Currently, there are no drug interactions found between levothyroxine and omeprazole.

However, this does not mean that interactions cannot exist. It is important to work with your pharmacist to see if there is any new information regarding these two products.

Omeprazole should be taken 30 minutes prior to a meal. Levothyroxine should be taken 30 minutes to one hour prior to a meal. They can be taken together with water on an empty stomach, if needed.
