Should I start taking medication?

From: ChihuahuaLove - 1 year 50 weeks ago

I was just diagnosed with hashimotos a month tsh, 3rd generation level came back 4.91.. T4, free is 1.0... Thyroglobulin ab is 35..and my thyroid peroxidase ab is >900. My doctor prescribed me levothyroxine and said she ideally would like my thyroid level to be closer to 2.5, but if I'm not feeling any symptoms she told me its my choice whether or not I start the medication. In 2013 I had my blood tested and my thyroid was 4.27.. So in 3 years it went up .64...I would just like to know other peoples opinion, if they would start the medication if they were me. Thanks so much
