Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Moreover, concomitant ingestion of calcium supplements, ferrous sulfate , proton-pump inhibitors, bile acid sequestrants, and sucralfate might influence LT4 absorption and/or metabolism.

Recent studies have shown that under experimental conditions ferrous sulfate may reduce the gastrointestinal absorption of orally administered levothyroxine sodium in patients with primary hypothyroidism.
Since both hypothyroidism and iron deficiency anemia may coexist, additional thyroid function testing is recommended in patients treated concurrently with ferrous sulfate and L-thyroxine.
