This time I'm on cytomax (thyroid hormone) twice a day, and the surgeon recommended calcium supplements as well (which are just smart for a woman my age really). Of course the tricky part is that the hormone dosages should be 12 hours apart, and ideally I shouldn't take calcium within four hours on either side of taking the hormone (it affects the absorption). So I'm creating a new routine.
Right now I have an alarm set on my phone for 7am. At that point I take the hormone pill I set in a shot glass by my bedside the night before, and go back to sleep. At 1p I take the calcium, and at 7p I take the hormone again.
I can't plan too far into the future right now - I go back off the hormone in three weeks to get ready for the radiation - and after that I don't know if I'll still be on a two a day regimen. I do want to work in some other supplements with the calcium at 1p - i really should be taking a multivitamin at least. So it looks like I'll be setting several alarms on my phone and making pills a habit. It'll be interesting to see how this goes.
Are there any supplements you take that you swear by?
