Hello from JustAnswer.

It would be fine if the two drugs are separated by a few hours. So, if the thyroxine is being taken at 7 AM, it would be good to take the omeprazole at 10 AM or later. The thyroxine will be fully absorbed by that point in time.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
