    I am so glad someone posted about this as I am under two GP's for this pregnancy (my normal one and the gp for shared care for hospital).

    The shared GP put me on this medication last week saying that my levels are fine if not preg but high for a preg lady. I don't get it at all but started taking it as I read about miscarriage risk and of course we really didnt want that.
    My normal gp just said that in my case it kinda just eliminates any risk of mc (as I am in 1st trimester).

    They like ur TSH level to be under 2.5 for pregnancy so the thyroxine lowers ur tsh lvl if its too high. If not pregnant or ttc the normal range is up to about 5.

    Perfectly safe tho and is class A i think

    Does the high number mean its over or under active? I really know nothing about it.

    If ur TSH is high it means ur thyroid is underactive.

    Its a bit confusing as it worksin reverse. This site might help http://thyroid.about.com/od/thyroidb.../confusion.htm
