What are your free t4 and free t3 levels. Your tsh that it seems you posted didn't look too bad. Before you buy medication, have people look at your other levels too, then find a doctor you can work with on this. Otherwise, taking thyroid hormone at the wrong level, can be dangerous.

This isn't a self-treatment kind of board.
The fact is, there's nothing in your TSH alone that proves you're hypothyroid. You need free T4 and free T3 tests, too. I realize you're in the UK and can't get them from the NHS, but asking us to help you treat yourself is asking us to help you give yourself a stroke or heart attack. None of us wants that.
