Recently informed I have borderline under active thyroid. GP says repeat blood test in 6 months. Same GP prescribed me with anti depressionmeds about 6 weeks ago. (Citalopram 20mg).also referred me to local CMHT. During recent phone assehssment with CMHT I mentioned the thyroid blood test and they said if I was under active then the meds and any therapy won't work properly unless the thyroid condition is treated.
I have symptoms of u/active thyroid such as depression, lack of energy, very tired, yawning a lot,etc. I take general multi vitamins inc iron. I am 52 female. Not sure if I am menopausal or not.
I did tell my GP that I didn't feel any different with the anti-depressents hence the thyroid test, but now that seems to be it for six months until I have repeat test.
Any suggestions what I can do to help myself ?
