weaning off levoxyl, transitioning to nature-throid

I got to see a new doctor today and he wants me to start on naturethroid right away. The plan is to weann off the levoxyl 100mcg that I'm on now. Here is the schedule planned:
every other day from tomorrow the levoxyl, so I took it today, tomorrow none, but the naturethroid every day, this so on till the 25th which I should take the levoxyl together with the naturethroid, then no levoxyl till the 28th and then the 31st the last day. The doctor told me he would start me in naturethroid 1 gr and 1/2 but at the pharmacy they gave me 1gr to take once a day, I'm confused and plus should'nt I be taking an increase in the naturethroid once the levoxyl is off? he didn't say anything about this, I have to take a blood test before I see him back in august the 17th to see how things are going. Any thougts? I'm really confused with all this numbers, I don't want to go hypo and start loosing my hair again!! I don't have anymore hair to lose or I'll be bald!!!! Probably I should just stay in 1gr till the levoxyl is off and then increase in 1/2 every other week? Any replies would be inmensely appreciated!!!!
