Anxiety board


I have been experiencing morning anxiety every morning about 5 am for a year and a half. I'm convinced it's due to a thyroid imbalance but just can't get it totally under control. I tried valium for about a year...OK....but xanax is much more effective. I take it every morning when the anxiety hits and usually don't need any more during the day, as the anxiety subsides in the afternoon and is gone by night. I'm now trying to add Cytomel to my thyroid meds to see if it will help the anxiety. Anyone with depression/anxiety should have their thyroid levels checked. There is a major relationship between the two and a fair amount ot research behind the theory.
