What happens if I miss my thyroid medication one day?

What happens if I miss my thyroid medication one day?

Levothyroxine has longer half-life, so a person would not have much effects if you miss one dose. Take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
