Hello there. I can understand your concern. There is a need to increase the dose of your thyroxine. But its better if you get your self checked by a endocrinologist in person before you increase the dose by yourself. Getting a endocrinologist's opinion will be a smart thing to do and then do as he suggests. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Balaji clinic. Bangalore.
