Re: hypothyroidism and depression?
Depression and anxiety can go hand in hand with hashis and while not nice at all to deal with is and can be normal, have you mentioned anxiety to your doc.? If this is a really bothersome side affect which it sounds like it is, he can possibly prescribe a mild anti anxiety tablet, however, it could also mean your hormones still aren't balanced and maybe you should look to addressing this first. While I cannot help with the optimal targets you should be aiming for, perhaps post your last lot of results. TSH, free T3 free T4 etc and there are some really wonderful people on here who can read them properly and guide in that way which you can then raise with your medical carer and look for an adjustment for optimal balance, this could alleviate these symptoms without taking extra medication which means you would be treating the source and not the symptom and that is the best way to go I feel. While you are not on synthetic meds the natural meds are STILL hormones and will still give Create some upheaval if not balanced correctly for you as an individual. I have been reading this site for a number of days and the information on it is invaluable. Posting your results will help you find your answers and reading others posts will help you feel less alone in your journey. I wish you all the best.
