Hi my name is Janet I live in the UK and this is my first post, I was diagnosed hypothyroid 12 years ago and feel I have been getting progressively worse, to the point three years ago, when I completely broke down, I can no longer do the office job I had as I simply can't remember the things I need to do, don't pass on messages etc, I get side tracked very easily, I took a year out of work, but need to do something to earn money so I started decorating, but I am struggling so much! My joints are getting really bad, some days I can't even hold a cup of tea without shooting pains down my wrist.
Hi all, having resisted anti depressants from my GP for a long time ( as I didn’t feel depressed, just physically very unwell ) I have finally started on a low dose of Sertraline, which has helped a little bit. Dr Peatfield had previously suggested trying T3 with NatureThroid, which I did for a few weeks, but was feeling so ill and not noticing any benefit whatsoever.
The last 15 months I have been suffering with anxiety and depression,it all started when I needed counselling for late bereavement, but waited 9 months on a waiting list, in the meantime the GP put me on Sertraline, Mirtazapine, had a 6 weeks break, were I went through hell, didn't know it was withdrawals, then I went on Fluoxetine for 10.5 weeks... Private Endo put me on Armour thyroxine, my thyroid went over, which put me in a bad way, that was only for 16 days, went back on Levo,.....

I was put on 125mg of sertraline a while ago, I've tried taking it so many times but I get so scared of how it's going to mess with my mind and that'll remove everything, like I won't be able to cry or even panic because it'll make me emotionally numb. I haven't told anyone because I think my family/doctor would kill me, but I don't know what to do!
Hi all, been on Levothyroxine for 40 days now had second blood test since being diagnosed, seeing practice nurse tomorrow as Dr not around. Feeling bloody terrible, also have come off Sertraline which I was on for 12 years, ( which I probably didn't need as I expect the hypothyroidism was making me depressed ).
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 16 years ago and over the years my dose of Levothyroxine has increased to 225mcg daily with the support of a consultant. 4 years ago I was prescribed 50mg of Sertraline by my GP to try and control menopausal night sweats the result of coming off HRT.
