Hello lovely people . A quick question I have been on levothyroxine for about a month because of hypothyroidism . I went back to my dr recently because I had been suffering symptoms of depression anxiety and not coping at work which I now suspect are all thyroid -related . My gp signed me off work and said ' you've got depression , I don't think it's anything to do with your thyroid ' she wanted to prescribe an anti depressant but I said I would rather not start on anti depressants . She then recommended St. John's wort but told me to check with my chemist as to whether it could be taken with levothyroxine . The pharmacist didn't know but looked on the instructions and said no. Is there any other herbal remedy I could take which might help with my mood or should I just wait for the levothyroxine to really kick in ?
