Hi Sumithra.

Please keep it mind to see a doctor personally when you want to discuss about medication doses and frequency. I agree with you that you need to reduce the dose of thyroid medication a bit.
In very rare cases, patients turn hyperthyroid from hyperthyroidism. So just check with your Endocrinologist whether it is the case in you. Take care.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Thyroid may not be the sole reason...
The dose is MICRO gram / not milligram...
The dose of thyronorm is adjusted by the TSH level, read in association with T4
Your T4 is just above normal / TSH is low - The reduction should be small - from 75 to 50... / there may not be a problem even with the present dose of 75 - repeat it in 2 months...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
