Thyroid hormone (Eltroxin) is normally present in everybody. It has practically NO side effects - unless the dose is high - when signs of hyperthyroidism can come.
Your treating doctor will adjust the dose depending on your blood test (TSH level).
You must be taking 100 MCG (MICROgram) / NOT 100 MG (MILLIgram) - as you have written! Watch out
You ought to see a dermatologist - for the patch and hair fall
Follow up with your endocrinologist for thyroid
Good luck
