In brief: Thyroid

It depends. You need to wait a bit and then have your levels rechecked.
Your doctor will adjust the dose accordingly. If your TSH is still high at that point, then you might need a referral to an endocrinologist. Ive seen people react differently to generic levothyroxine vs synthroid more than any other med so that might be something they'll consider.
