Re: med sensitive
Synthroid isn't a "stimulating" drug. It's a hormone. Not even a "drug", really, because it doesn't change the way your body works; it only aids your body to work the way it's supposed to. It's a duplicate of the hormone your own thyroid gland would be making if it could. Your body must have an adequate amount of it to get by. Yours doesn't. You have mentioned in past posts that your TSH is 4.2. Even though that's within the so-called "normal" range, it isn't normal for at least 95% of the population. You must figure out a way - with the help of your doctor - to work up to an adequate dose of Synthroid or other thyroid medication to replace the hormone you aren't getting from your thyroid gland.
How long have you been taking Synthroid, and in what dose?
Hypothyroidism may be the only culprit responsible for your anxiety, or it may not be. One thing is clear... If you have anxiety, treating your hypothyroidism can only help it and shouldn't make it worse.
