You will have to take it for whole life.  You can also try alternate medicine which will help you regulate your harmones.

hypothyroidism means that your thyroid gland is not secreting enough of thyroid hormones; so you have to take medications to supplement the same. there various causes for this condition; also do you have any swelling in your neck? if yes, then it has to be investigated ,also you have to undergo 6 monthly blood test for thyroid profile.
