[IP] thyroid and calcium carbonate

Did any of you know that if you take thyroid meds, you cannot have calcium 
carbonate within 4 hours of taking it? This is an ingredient found in many 
cereals now, and in things like Tums, Os-cal, Pepcid complete, etc. 
Apparently it binds with the Synthroid and you don't get the full effect of 
the T4 medication. I'm bummed cuz I enjoy my cereals in the am! Can we write
