Your thyroid dose is inadequate as your TSH is still 10.93, in-spite of taking thyroid medication. I presume you had taken the medications regularly. I would prefer to increase the dose of thyroxine to 100mcg daily. Then we could check TSH after 8 weeks and titrate dose further. Dose titration is based on your clinical symptoms and not merely on TSH.
