Do not stop your thyroid hormone without discussing this with your physician. Most thyroid problems are permanent, and therefore most patients require thyroid hormone for life.
If you stop your thyroid hormones, as your levels begin to drop, you will start to experience the symptoms of hypothyroidism - being more sensitive to cold, constipation, depression, fatigue or feeling slowed down, heavier menstrual periods, joint or muscle pain etc.
