Brief Answer:
Has he lost weight after medication?

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

It is good to see a downward shift in TSH value. But if his weight is unchanged, and if he has no anxiety, palpitation, tremors or sweating, I will continue to maintain thyroid dosage at 100mcg.

Hope this answered your question. Let me know if you need clarifications.
