Discussions that mention prozac

Thyroid Disorders board


Hi and welcome to the thyroid board. I see you're no stranger to healthboards.
Let's see, can anyone relate? Sure. Most of can. Did your doc tell you what type of antibodies are present? Did he give you a dx of Graves Disease or Hashimoto's?
For me, I have my good days and bad days. But not as bad as it used to be.
Can emotional stress make it worse? I'm not entirely sure but I'm inclined to say yes. This is a case of "What came first? The chicken or the egg?". Stress is listed as a symptom of thyroid disease. So the question is "Is stress making the thyroid condition worse or is the thyroid condition making the stress worse?". I was so stressed and depressed before my dx that my doc had me on both Xanax and Prozac at the same time and I was STILL so stressed you wouldn't believe. The meds did nothing for me. Now that I'm taking meds for my thyroid, I'm much better emotionally.
