Hello dear
I understand your concern
Thyronorm is completely safe in pregnancy.
Aim of the TSH in the pregnancy is below the 3 mIU/L.
It prevent the miscarriage, preterm labour, pre eclampsia and slower developmental milestones in baby due to higher TSH (> 3 mIUL/L).
It is safe and cause minor side effects like
Muscle weakness, nervousness, headache, nausea, diarrhea.
All these side effects are tolerable.
Repeat the test after 6 week after starting the tablet.
Hope this may help you
