Take thyroxine sodium 50 micrograms daily on empty stomach , at least half an hour before having tea.Get your profile repeated after 8 weeks ans see the level of TSH , if still high you have to increase the dose upto 75 micrograms per day.The drug should be taken under physician's guidance.Take calcium and vit D supplements along with this therapy.There should be a gap of at least 4 hours betwEen thyroxine tablet and calcium supplemets.Regarding homeopathic medicine there is no harm in taking them along with this.
