Brief Answer:
Do not discontinue thyronorm tablets

Detailed Answer:
Dear madam

Welcome to healthcare magic

I reviewed your details carefully and I came to know that you have missed some of the vital points.

You should have never stopped thyronorm tablets beacuse usually these tablets are for life long and stopping these tablets can causenon specific complaints such as increased weight, increased body fat, loss of appetite etc.

Your headache might be due to your discontinuation of thyronorm.

Secondly your dosage might be enough but to know it you need to take the tablets continously for some days and repeat the test again. Review with the results. Grosly if your weight is neutral then dosage might be ok, but if you are gaining weight then dosage might be not sufficient

You can get eye check up done for headache

Hope this information is helpful
