    Hello All. I have a question. I have hypothyroidism.Will the magnesium in the ZMA prevent my thyroid medications from working? Thanks.....Fleeta

    Hi Fleeta, welcome to our world. ZMA is 'zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B-6', you could ask your doctor or pharmacist if any of these supplements would be a problem with your thyroid meds, but I doubt it.

    Also ssMarilyn is also on thyroid meds, and I think she takes ZMA. But am not positive.

    Be sure to ask before starting it.

    Shalom, Shirl

    I believe that if you take it 4-6 hours away from your thyroid meds, then it is ok.

    Need to be taken at least two hours before or after taking any minerals. I take my hormones first thing in the morning upon wakening on an empty stomach. They work better that way.

    Love, Mikie
