converting from mcg to mg

I usually use 100mcg of a thyroid medication and was given pills that say .15mg .
How how many/much do I use? :)

0.15 mg = 150 mcg. That's a 50% increase in medication.

I suggest you call your physician to find out if he raised the amount of your medication. If not, I would make the pharmacy give you the correct dosage, then find a new pharmacy for the next refill.
