Thyroid hormone from tablets could take 6- weeks or so to clear, and if the TSH was very low or undetectable, it could take longer than 6 weeks to completely re-equilibrate after stopping thyroid tablets. But if thyroid hormone levels are still high, or TSH stays low, your thyroid is probably overactive. ...Read more
