can you drink alcohol while taking levothyroxine?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
It is safe to drink in moderation while taking levothyroxine. Just don't drink so much you forget tomorrow morning's dose, 30 mins before breakfast (on an empty stomach). Cheers!

Not really. It's usually ok to have one glass of wine or something but generally it's not a good idea. Alcohol is a depressant and it's just counteracts the antidepressants. I had a BAD experience drinking on Lexapro. I drank 2 BOTTLES of champagne and a 32 oz of beer and I woke up the next day to a mild seizure and the DTs. My doctor told me it was because my liver function was compromised because of the Lexapro and the alcohol affected me differently. I had horrible withdrawals from it. Be careful and don't drink too much.

Yes, you can just do not take it close to taking your medication. Your med should be taken on an empty stomach.
