Am pregnant. Taking Thyroxine-50. TSH is -2.74 now. Should I continue Thyroxine?

Hello Doctor, I m 2 months pregnant and during my pregnancy blood test doctor asked me to take TSH level test. We tested the level at first week and it showed as -6.09. Hence doctor advised to take Thyroxine-50 tablet. After one week again we performed the test and now the level shows as TSH-2.74, FT3-3.02 and FT4- 1.08. Now my query is whether i need to continue Thyroxine-50 tablet for one more month. If i continue is the TSH level will go down or create any problem in pregnancy. Please advise.. Thanks in advance....Jeeva

Hello Jeeva,
As your TSH level was high at first visit, you need to take the prescribed medication. The levels need to be checked after about 6 weeks of starting treatment for dose adjustment.
Also during pregnancy, many changes occur in body, so you need to check TSH, free T3 and T4 levels in every trimester of pregnancy.
Hope this is helpful.
