Hey Asif!

Eltroxin is the only standard medication recommended and the dose is mcg (not mg). The fatigue/ tiredness is likely to be due to hypothyroidism or low hormone levels which the eltroxin tends to normalize. It would normally take sometime for the eltroxin to stabilize levels in blood after which the symptoms are likely to improve.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

can you post your sisters lab results from her last tests ?  

most importantly :

free t3,
free t4,
tsh

also has she been tested for hashimotos?   this would show up as:

TPO antibodies
or possibly TGAB  on her tests
