Hi, levothyroxine is usually given at higher doses. Perhaps you meant 125mcg?
This is a slow process. Every six weeks or so the doctor is to do another blood test, see how you are adapting and may change the dose. It can take months to adjust. Be sure you get In for the blood tests so that you can stay in touch with the dose your body needs. You may feel better around that time. It is not quick,
Any more questions, please ask.
