Re: can drying up be reversed??
Because you're using a fairly large amount of formula, you're probably going to need to drop the supplements gradually instead of all at once. This link explains how to do it: http://kellymom.com/bf/got-milk/basi...rease-formula/. Basically, you decrease the amount of supplement by a little bit every day, compensating by nursing more and perhaps pumpng in addition to nursing.

If you're taking replacement thyroid hormone (e.g. Synthroid or levothyroxine), that is only replacing what your body would normally make. It is when a mom is hypothyroid and is not taking enough medication that her milk supply can be effected. Since postpartum thyroiditis is common even in women who have not had thyroid issues before pregnancy, this is a good time to see your GP or endocrinologist and get your TSH tested.
You are definitely NOT done breastfeeding, and if you nurse more and pump more you're going to get your milk supply up and you will go on to nurse this baby for as long as you want!
