One year ago today.. i decided to come down on my so called anti-depressant from 30mg to 20 and i have been unwell ever since .. For the first few months it was fine and I seemed to be ok but then around September time i started to feel odd (my doctor advised i drop another 10mg and add another anti-depressant in to the mix.. I refused and asked for blood tests because my daughter has graves disease and well, I just had a feeling something was not right because thyroid disease is genetic . Anyway, test came back, I am borderline hypo.. ok i thought this means they will check my hormone levels every 2 months .. Then I went to see a doctor and asked one question 'I have suffered with depression and anxiety most of my life and always been on some tablet or other could these tablets have been masking my thyroid promble? The doctor looked at me and said YES... I could not believe it and I am damn angry.. .. Please be careful when they give you anti-depressants as a cure ..because they are not.
