In brief: Not a whole lot.

Synthroid (thyroxine) has a long half-life so that short breaks in medication will not lower your levels a whole lot.
However, if you keep missing doses your thyroid hormone levels will be too low and you will have symptoms of hypothyroidism such as fatigue and weight gain.

In brief: Nothing much

Missing a few days of a thyroid supplement usually will cause no noticeable problems.
