    Is anyone treating thyroid symptoms with ADHD meds?

    Hi,

    I have thyroid antibodies and my thyroid looks inflamed on ultrasound but I cannot find a doctor who will treat with a TSH of 2.5. So while I continue my search for treatment, I need to find some way to get by day to day with my symptoms. My worst problems right now are fatigue and lack of concentration/mental fog. I have forgotten two physical therapy appts (I have never done that in my entire life), forgotten two appts for my kids, often take the wrong route when I am driving somewhere and have to backtrack, and leave the stove on almost every day when I make lunch for my kids.

    Since the irony of life is that doctors will giveout ADHD meds like M&Ms, but won't give out thyroid meds, I am thinking of treating the symptom before my forgetfulness and spaciness make something terrible happen.

    Anyone else trying ADHD meds for these symptoms? Anything else I can try?

    Thanks!

    Phew, I'd be very cautious about this approach, it really sounds like an inapproprate use of these medications. I would rather order my own desiccated thyroid from Thailand (Thyroid-S) and order my own labs online than try what is essentially speed for my hypothyroidism.
