Hi everyone. I need some advice about T3. I was diagnosed as hypo. when I was 19 and have been on Levothyroxine since then (I'm now almost 30). The dose started at 50mg and increased gradually to 175mg last year, before being decreased to 150mg about 4 months ago.
I was put on antidepressants about 5 years ago and stayed on them for 2 years. Since then I've been tired, have put lots of weight, have trouble concentrating and have awful mood swings - in short, all the symptoms that led me to being diagnosed as hypo. in the first place. I have a doctors' appointment on Monday and am thinking of requesting yet another blood test to see if my T3 needs help but I'm worried that the doctor won't listen to me and will either try to put me back on antidepressants, which I know I don't need, or fob me off with a levo. increase.
