Yes, when my dosage was reduced from 175 to 150 per day, my endo actually gave me the option of switching to 150 mcg tablets (x 7 days a week) or staying with the 175 mcg (x only 6 days a week). The total mcg for the week in this case was exactly the same: 1050. I opted to stick with the 175 mcg so I could have a day when I didn’t have to worry about taking my levothyroxine. It turns out that I worried about it anyway. (“Is this the day I don’t have to take it or is that tomorrow?”) If I had it to do over again, I’d just take the 150 mcg every day. I think that’s why they have you take it daily – so it becomes a habit and you’re more likely to be 100% compliant.
