Brief Answer:
No

Detailed Answer:
There is no published report in medical literature, to the best of my knowledge, that taking an inadvertent lower dose of levoxyl with consequent changes in blood thyroid hormone levels for a period of 1 to 2 months, will impact the measured PSA level

In general, there is no known direct correlation between thyroid and prostate
