Hello.. If all symptoms suggestive suggestive of hypothyroidism you can take medicine before testing thyroid profile ... After test result you can either stop or alter the dosage and continue.. It's not harmful ,that's why doc prescribed you 25 mcg. Get thyroid profile and consult general physician.
