Your doctor should start with a dosage of 150 micrograms and should test your levels regularly to try and get your count as normal as possible. If you experience symptoms of hypothyroidism, you can increase your dose with increments of 25 micrograms. Your doctor should closely observe your condition. Have some patience, as hypothyroidism is not easily treated.
