I am wondering if I can take Levothyroxine along with MAO inhibitor? Also, I have taken Etizolam for a sleep disorder, how long do I need to wait before I can take MAO inhibitor?

Thank you, doctor,
That was very helpful. How long does it take for Etizolam to leave the body completely? I used to take it regularly, but have just taken two tablets of 0.5 mg, a week ago. Is my body already cleaned off it?
