I would speak to the doc./pharmacist who prescribed the med, this is what has been reported:
"It may take several weeks before your body starts to respond to this medication. Do not stop taking this medication suddenly. Even if you feel well, you may still need to take this medicine every day for the rest of your life to replace the thyroid hormone your body cannot produce."
Hope it helps & you seek medical advice.
