Hello there.

I can understand your concern.
Thyroid medicines need to be taken on an empty stomach. That is the first thing that you should take after getting up is the medicines.
After half an hour of taking medicines, he can take the above said juice.
I would not advice to take it the other way round .
Medicine should be first.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
