37.5mcg of Levothyroxine once daily early in the morning in empty stomach. Methylcobalamin +ALA +Benfothiamine +Inositol +EPA +DHA +Calcium +Calcitriol +D3 2000iu OD after lunch Repeat TFT after 2-3mths as FT3, FT4 n TSH. Adjust the dose as per the investigation report obtained. @Seema Kumari Levothyroxine starts showing it's effect after 8-12wks of daily regular administration. So, testing interval is 2-3mths.
