Thyroxine Dosage

My Doctor wants me to take 200mg and then 150mg thyroxine alternative days

Whats the advantage of alternative dosage?

Is a high dosage dangerous?

The two med. dose would equal out to a daily dosage of 178.57 and there is not a single pill for that dosage.

The dosage is not too high if level relates to you needing it. Evidently doctor  thinks its not too high for you.
