Eltroxin is used in hypothyroid so the dosage is according to the level of thyroid hormones.If you are planning for a baby then also you will require to take the same dosage to maintain proper hormonal levels .The dose adjustment should be done if there is any problem or you have abnormal levels of thyroid hormones.The best thing you can do is consult your doctor and get the Thyroid test done .After seeing the result your doctor will adjust the dosage if required or he/she may advise you to take the same dosage of Eltroxin.
