I've been taking levothyroxin for 3 years at 150 mcg, do you think this is a high dose?

Levothyroxine doses are adjusted according to the levels of thyroid hormone in your blood. If your bloodwork reveals low thryroid hormone in your blood, the dose is usually increased and visa versa. Levothyroxine therapy is highly individualized according to specific patient response. If your T3, T4, TH levels have been stabilized on that particular dose, then apparently it is the correct dose for YOU. There is no "across the board" dosage for levothyroxine therapy, whereas with tylenol for example, 650 mg is a normal dose and 1500 mg is a high dose.
