Hi. I haven't posted before but have found the site useful. Now I have a question I would appreciate some advice on.
I have been on levothyroxine 75mg for the past 5 years. Three years ago I was suffering anxiety and panic attacks. I was prescribed sertraline 50mg and gradually got better. Looking back there was a lot of stressful stuff going on which has now resolved. I have continued with the medication but I am wondering if I still need to. I feel fine and have not had any panic attacks for 2 years.
Part of me questions the need for sertraline and part of me thinks don't rock the boat if you feel well. I don't want to become unwell again as it was a horrible time and I was off work for 3 months but neither do I want to take medication unnecessarily.
I asked my gp who said its up to me but I would like some advice. Perhaps I could reduce the dose? On the other hand I believe thyroid problems can cause low mood so should I just leave well alone as I am feeling ok.
