Discussions that mention prozac

Thyroid Disorders board


Thanks so much for the response. I'll keep at it for a while then.

Did doc put anyone else on prozac? I agrred to take it (before labs came back showing hypo) because I can't stand how irritable and out of control I feel towards my family. Anyway, I wondered how long til synthroid helps and I can quit it? I really don't want to take it, but couldn't stand myself anymore.
It can take 4 to 6 weeks for the synthroid to come up to levels in your system to do any good. Most of us have been given anti-depressants at one time or another for these symptoms. Dr. give out feel good pills and dismiss you as a hypochondriac. If these symptoms are from your thyroid the Prozac will not do much for you.

May God Bless You and Keep You
