NO,continue 100 mg till TSH comes under 3.0.Also get periodical check up, once in 3 months with endocrinologist. When ever you post report on this forum always copy full report. Normally report says about total T3 T4 And free T3 T4, TSh levels.Also keep a watch on yourr neck selling and associated symptoms if any
