Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for posting your query on Ask a Doctor service.

You might have to start with low dose thyroxine. The dosage also depends on other factors like weight, age, and the symptoms you have.

You also might be asked to get Thyroid scan.

For this, I would suggest you to visit near by Endocrinologist for further evaluation.

Please revert back for any more queries.

Thanks,
Dr. Saisudha
