My TSH levels have gone from normal to 15.6 in two months . I take my medication in the morning 45 min. Prior to other meds and food. What's up?

In brief: Thyroid

If you are using a generic brand of thyroid meds you might want to consider a non-generic brand.
You also need to have your doctor check the thyroid levels (t4 and t3) and thyroid antibody measurement might be in order. In the meantime you might try 1 tablet one morning and two tablets on alternative days.
