My daughter got serious mono second semester of freshman year and had to return from college. Her Pediatrician said that the mono virus was affecting her thyroid at that time (January of 2011).

... The dose increase makes sense to me. The doctor probably believes the tinier increase would prolong the agony for you and the 25 mcg increase is warranted in your case. I wouldn't be afraid of it if it were me.
