Thanks for posting your query.

I do understand that you are taking levothyroxine 75mcg for probable hypothyroidism. It is preferable to get your Free T 4 and TSH checked and the medication has to be taken after the test.

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