Hi, I'm new to this site but was wondering if anyone is taken Thyroxine and Endep (amitriptyline) and if so if they've had any side effects like confusion and brain processing.
I had radioactive iodine treatment for an overactive thyroid 25 years ago and since then have been on 100mg thyroxine daily. I started menopause 5 years ago and then 2 years ago started to get headaches 24/7 (not migranes just pains which moved around my whole head - eyes, ears, jaw, back of head, top of head, temples. Stabbing, shooting, pounding). I was basically undiagnosed by a neurologist but after trying several migrane and other medications which did nothing he started me on endep. I am now on 25mg and have been for about 18months.
The headache is under control but I have a lot of symptoms of early dementure. I forget where things are or why I'm in a room, I get words mixed up (I'll boil the toaster) I forget the names of everyday items ie calculator, and I seem to have difficulty copying numbers from the calculator to the computer without transposing the numbers.
I'm clutching at straws but this has been getting worse recently and I probably noticed the problem about 6 months ago.
