WHile rare, it is noted that paxil can be associatted with hypothyroidism. However, I wonder if Paxil may be prescribed because of its familarity with the public when the actual problem is hypothyroidism. I have been taking Paxil for about 5 months and after a recent blood test my doc tells me I have borderline hypothyroidism. Also cholesterol of 240. I am also sleepy often (and can nap easily when I get the chance). I was worried about paxil affecting my thyroid, but perhaps it is my thyroid that is affecting my biochemistry more than anything else.
From reading this board, it appears that there is a connection, but it is not clear what comes first.
Please comment if you have any insight.
