Re: Thyroid problem?

I have taken antidepressants for years. When I told my psychiatrist that I had started taking thyroid meds too, she seemed sort of excited, saying that the thyroid meds often help improve depression. So at least some doctors are aware that thyroid problems can actually influence anxiety and depression.

Re: Thyroid problem?

yes, and some find they don't need them once they become optimized on thyroid meds. They never look for that first as the cause for depression in a LOT of patients. Good point!
