hi,thanks for query.What I understand is that you are having hypothyroidism and on treatment for this.At present you are taking 50mcg.You have continue taking this tablets life long.Your thyroid gland is not producing sufficient hormones in your body so that you have take supplements for it.Do not discontinue this tablets or reduce the dose without advise from your doctor.This are very good and safe drugs so do not worry.

wishing you good health.
