Yeah. It really gets your goat when you find out how preposterous the whole situation is.
Yup. Depression. Fibromyalgia. Do more research and you will find that some docs now believe fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are hypothyroidism...
If you haven't already done so, tabulate your past thyroid lab tests: date, dose you were taking, lab numbers for TSH, FT4, FT3, (and units), whatever tests were done. You might have to get numbers from your doc. You do have the right to get copies of lab results.
Are you aware that we have "Thyroid" made by Erfa Canada. It is similar to Armour but not identical - the amounts of T4 and T3 in the pills are different.
An alternative is using synthroid plus slow release T3. Recommend you look at this paper: However I do not agree with his method of calculating how much T3 to take - he gets too much T3. This paper has a lot of good general info.
