I just thought I'd put this out there because my blood results have shown some interesting findings. Please understand that this is my PERSONAL experience and I'm not declaring any medical findings.
For many years I was taking seroxat for terrible depression. I was one of the lucky ones for whom seroxat was a life saver. No side effects. Only positive benefits.
I was also taking. 1.5 grains of ERFA at the same time. My FT3 level on a range of 3.1 to 6.8 rose to 6.2 and I felt good. WELL. Functioning. At times positively marvellous!
This being the case I decided to drop my seroxat altogether. This I managed to do fairly quickly. No side effects. I have been seroxat free for nearly a year. HOWEVER..........
And this is the interesting thing. My FT3 dropped down to 4.9 and many of my hypo symptoms started to reappear. And so I began to raise my ERFA. Not quite there yet, still fine tuning in that department.
I wonder has anyone else noticed a drop in their FT3 levels when removing an antidepressent from the equation?? Xxx
