HI
WELCOME TO HCM
IN MY OPINION, 150 MCG OF THYROXINE IS IDEAL FOR MOST OF THE PATIENTS.I WILL ADVISE YOU TO DO TSH TEST AFTER 2 MONTHS AND GET THE DOSE ADJUSTED.
YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT IN TAKING TABLET ON EMPTY STOMACH IN THE MORNING.
I WANT TO STRESS UPON YOU THAT YOU NEED TO TAKE THYROXINE TABLET LIFELONG.
THANKS
