In brief: Possibly.

Levothyroxine is given to replace thyroid hormone deficiency.
If your thyroid function improves, as followed up through lab work with a doctor, there could be a reason to decrease or go off the medication. If it is taken for other reasons see your doctor about going off the medication.
