Re: Antidepressants and Thyroid
Thyroid can mimic "mental illness". When I was rushed to the ER by my (now ex) family doctor, who had cut my synthroid from 175 to 100, the ER doctor diagnosed me as depressed and prescribed Zoloft---despite my protests that I thought my problems were due to too little thyroid. They insisted I take the Zoloft. I did. I took one of them and then threw the rest in the toilet when I got home.
When my husband thought I was going a little "nutty", he had me see an acquaintance who was a psychiatrist. After asking me a few questions, he ordered blood work for thyroid and upped my dose. After looking at the test he told me he thought my problems were due to too little thyroid and increased my dose. I felt a whole lot better. Not as anxious, better able to deal with stuff.
You might go and check with a psychiatrist. It's worth checking into.
