Nothing to worry. That is levothyroxine tablets given for hypothyroidism and other brands example ELTROXIN


are freely available at dosage denomination of 88mcg that is similar to what you are taking that is 88 mcg. Do check your thyroid harmony status that is Free T3 Free T4 and TSH and adjust the dosage accordingly. Do remember thyroid harmone replacement has to be taken for lifelong with at least annual thyroid status monitoring. It is a very safe and affordable medication.
