Not necessarily; for someone with no natural hormone that's a reasonable dose. I'm taking 200 mcg myself. (Note that synthroid is measured in micrograms rather than milligrams; 200 mcg is 0.2 mg.) And it can take some time to get dosages right. Have you had follow-up labs recently? These should be every three months then every six months until you've been stable for a while, then yearly.
