Magaldrate in Magaldrate may interact with LEVOTHYROXINE in Synthroid
Magaldrate contains both aluminum and magnesium. Either aluminum or magnesium or both may decrease the absorption of levothyroxine by the body. Potentially less levothyroxine would be available for the body to use and levothyroxine could be less effective. If levothyroxine and magaldrate must be taken at the same time, blood levels of levothyroxine may need to be monitored more closely. If problems occur, the dose of levothyroxine may need to be adjusted. Discuss this potential interaction with your healthcare provider at your next appointment, or sooner if you think you are having problems.

This interaction is poorly documented and is considered moderate in severity.
