Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

You mean to say thyronorm which is a drug used in hypothyroidism. Your wife should take the medicine as prescribed by her doctor.

During pregnancy, the thyroid gland needs to produce more thyroid hormone. Women who don't receive enough thyroid hormone during pregnancy are at greater risk of multiple complications and children whose mothers didn't have enough thyroid hormone during pregnancy have lower IQs.

Hence your wife should not stop taking the medicine unless her doctor asks her to do so.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
