How far apart should you space calcium?
If I take my Carafate at 8am, my Synthroid at 10am, my multi at noon, then calcium at 2pm, multi at 4pm, calcium at 6pm, and Carafate at 10pm, when can I take my third calcium dose? Would 8pm be too soon after the 6pm dose?
I can't take any of these meds together.

As far as your supplements - you should be taking a multi with no iron in it like centrum silver or centrum silver chewables -then take a separate iron supplement. This way you can take your multis and calcium together - and your calcium needs to be 2 hours apart from iron and thryoid and also 2 hours from itself.
You could take carafate at 8 am, calcium and multi at 10 am, calcium at 12 noon, synthroid at 2 pm, calcium and multi at 4 pm. Iron with vitamin C at 6 pm and carafate at bedtime - 10pm or later.
