Thyroid medication
Hi, I am on thyroid medication since 11 years. My dose was increased initially gradaually but was on 75mg for almost 8 years. It was increased to 100 mg during pregnancy last year. After delivery I was asked to continue same 100 mg. After 2 months when TSH was tested again it was below normal range so dose was reduced to 88mg. After two weeks of dose change in new test TSH is reduced further so my doctor asked now to change to 75mg. I am pretty confuse why its like this. How it reduced further with 88mg. Just to add I am taking one multivitamin which has iodine 150 mg. Can it interfare with Thyroid? Could anyone please suggest whats happening here?

Within 2 weeks of dose change, thyroid profile is of not much use, atleast it takes 4-6 weeks for the tsh to adapt and increase to the new dose.
