Your TSH level of 2.56 appears normal. But as you had taken medicines for last 4 years, just give some time for thyroid to act. You can repeat TSH level after another 4-8 weeks & then decide whether to restart the medicines or not. In between this time if your symptoms worsen you can consult your doctor.
Wish you good health.
