This is Dr. Bonilla.

I understand your concerns. A level of 0.02 is lower than expected for a normal range(0.3-4.5) in people taking levoxyl. The dose you are taking is too high and needs to be reduced. Please rate my answer. Let me know if you have any other questions.

This is Dr. David

a TSH level of 0.02 means you are hyperthyroid.

it means that your level of thyroid hormone in your body is too high.

are you taking your levoxyl 200mcg every day?

you should talk to your doctor about lowering your dose of levoxyl and re-testing your thyroid hormone levels and TSH levels in 6-8 weeks again

let me know if you have other questions.
