How can i normalize the TSH level ?

Hi, before starting with the medicine, my TSH level was 8.0 and my periods were irregular and the BP was 160/90. After taking the medicines of thyronorm (50 mg), firstly it came down to 0.08. Then my doctor reduced the medicine to 25mg, then the TSH level was 14.77. But my periods are regular and BP level has come down to 140/80. How can i normalize the TSH level as i m regularly taking the medicines prescribed by Doctor. Do i need to take the thyroid medicines life long.

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, you should not reduse 25 mg dose of thronorm , you should first skip dose once a weak for some month then 2 days in a weak, this is protocol of taking this drug , you should get tsh every 3 month n adjust dose according to report, you should take this medicine life long but you can reduse your dose at minimum leval.

Hello.Welcome.If after reducing the medicine your TSH has shot to 14.77 then it means you will have to increase the dose of thyronorm.Ideal dose of thyronorm is when your TSH level is in the middle of normal range.Keep repeating your TSH every 3 months and adjust the dose accordingly.Yes you have to take the medicine life long.Good luck.

Thanks for query,
To control thyroid proper titration of dose is required.
gradually by adjustment of dose thyroid will remain in control.
Your problem of period and BP is solved so nothing to worry.
You have to continue the thyronorm minimum dose for prolonged period as a maintenance dose.
Ok and bye.
Ok and bye.
