Hi everyone . I ve posted before with 9 yrs of symptoms that have gone undiagnosed.
Out of desperation I reluctantly sought help from a psychiatrist who is extremely helpful and prescribed venlafaxine. After taking these for almost a year I an still suffering all the same symptoms . Extreme exhaustion and body feeling like lead being the worst.
On review with my psychiatrist last week, he suggested supplementing my anti d s with t3 ( if my GP will prescribe) .
Today I received a copy of the letter he sent to my GP asking to treat me with t3 or t4 but t4 would be the easier route to essentially make me hyperthyroid . I'm very confused as he said t3 in the review. Also I suspect I was hyperthyroid when all my problems started .
Is this a way forward ? Has anyone else been medicated like this ?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated . X
