Welcome to HCM.

According to your TSH level you are hypothyroid,means deficiency of thyroid hormone.

Due to some reason your thyroid gland is not producing this hormone which is important for body.So you have to take this for life time.Also go for regular check up of TSH level.There is no any remarkable side effect of thyronorm.

You can ask your treating doctor.
