Hi,
Welcome to HCM. I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

If your thyroid function tests are normal, you can continue the medications. Hair loss is seen with hypothyroidism and not a side effect of thyronorm. Other investigations that are needed as thyroid antibodies and ultrasound neck to find out the cause and prognosis of hypothyroidism.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
With warm regards,
