    Mine is 88mcg—-doc told me I only needed it if I’m planning to have another kid— but my friends said they have to take their levy thyroxine for the rest of their lives—-I get blood test and my hypothyroid goes away and I’m balance , even without taking the meds. (I’m not planning of having another baby anymore) but doctor haven’t said if I should stop it. I don’t want to take unnecessary meds if I don’t need it.

    You may want to go ahead and look into removing your thyroid.
