Thanks for the query.

You have provided me with good information.

Your TSH level is 100 and T3 and T4 levels are normal.
The normal reference range of Thyroid stimulating hormone range (TSH ) is 0.3 to 3.0 micro Iu/ml.

You are taking 50 mcg of Thyronorm tablet for this from past 4 months and there seems to be no decrease in the levels. I think the dose is not appropriate, but you have to consult your Physician to adjust the doses. You will have to discuss this with him.

I have not heard of any tablet named Electrocin, so I cannot comment of the difference between it and Thyronorm. If you have the right spelling of the medicine/content of medicine, you can send that to me.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.
