    I'm a pharmacist so I'm not able to comment much about the condition, but I can say that your doctor is able to prescribe corticosteroids for your eyes to reduce the inflammation if it's bothersome and isn't resolving while you wait for your thyroid levels to normalize. Levothyroxine will typically take 20 days to be completely eliminated from the body, but hopefully your symptoms won't take that long to resolve.
