mom takes 75mg of synthroid-dr gave her 150mg sample and she don't remember if he said to take half a pill or to take 2 pills for normal dosage
This is just as simple as it should seem. 150mg means 150 milligrams, 75mg means 75 milligrams. If your mother is supposed to take 75 mg, and she has 150 mg pills, she should take half of a pill for the normal dosage. If she took two, she'd be taking 300 mg, which is 4 times her normal dose.
