For everyone taking this stuff prescribed in France, you should have been advised by your doc and/or your pharmacy that the formula supplied by Merck has changed.
You should have been told to finish up any of the old tablets in the blue boxes before starting on the new ones in the red-printed boxes, and not to then take any old blue-box tablets you might have forgotten about.
You MUST also get a TSH test within 2-3 months of taking the new formula drug.
Here is the Merck link on the subject (in french)

I've just had my check-up test and whoops! as I'd guessed from various factors (significant weight loss and other typical hyperthyroid symptoms) my TSH level is way up on what it should be. I'm seeing my GP on Tuesday.
