Discussions that mention prozac

Thyroid Disorders board


your mom has very similar numbers to me actually.. except my FT4 is a smidge lower. I'd definatley recommend you/her to try to find a doctor that will treat based on symptoms and labs - I've had the best luck with a naturopath.

I can't comment on Effexor - but my mom was put on Synthroid and Prozac at the same time, and she just about lost it. Things were really rough for a while. Is the Effexor seeming to make a difference? I'm guessing not.. I would almost bet that if she got her thyroid problem dealt with, she wouldn't see a need for the anti-depressants.
