Thyroid support formula, containing Tyrosine, also contains Iodine and other vitamins & minerals. All these are micro-nutrients naturally present in foods and salt. Almost all of these ingredients would already be present in your normal diet in adequate quantities. However if you are not taking any other multivitamin, it probably would not hurt to take this supplement.
Generally we do not recommend or endorse such supplements, as they are not rigorously tested or approved by any recognized medical university or agency. So their efficacy or drug interactions are not known, and all we have is claims made by the company and some testimonials from their 'satisfied customers'.
If you still have symptoms of hypothyroidism, I think you should an endocrinologist and discuss if you need dose adjustment for Levothyroxine.
