My latest TSH result was 0.426...below the normal to low range. My dosage was changed from 0.075 mg to 0.05 mg. Since my TSH was below normal, the latest dosage seems lower than the 0.075. I'm confused...

@Dona,

0.05mg is indeed a lower dose than 0.075mg. If your thyroid hormone levels were on the low end, it does seem odd to me that the prescribing doctor would lower your dose; especially since levothyroxine is indicated for treating thyroid hormone deficiency... So I think any patient would feel confused by that decision... Have you discussed this predicament with your doctor yet to see what his/her view point is on the matter? Hopefully they had a good reason without trying to jeopardize your treatment.

Hi. I am 11 weeks pregnant with hypothyroidism. My TSH is 4.6 so my doctor increased the dosage of Levothyroxine from 137 mg to 150 mg. Is this fine or will another 12.5 mg have to be increased since the TSH level is above 2.5?
