Hi welcome to HCM. Well, 150 mcg of thyronorm is a heavy dose and transiently there may be symptoms and signs of thyroid excess--sweating, rapid pulse, heat intolerance etc. But it should clear up soon since he is a child. Give him a lot of water to drink and make sure he passes plenty of urine so that the drug clears up fast from his system.But in case you notice that the symptoms remain even after a couple of days, do get his Thyroid function tests done and consult a paediatrician. Hope this fully answers your query. Regards
