Yes you can if your blood tests for thyroid are now normal.

I think the warning would pertain only to allergy meds which contain decongestants, such as sudafed as these are stimulants that can raise blood pressure and accelerate the heart rate. Plain antihistamines should be ok for patients with treated hyperthyroidism or who take levothyroxine.
