I have been ill having extreme fatigue, depression, dry skin and some form of dementia for the past 2 years and I have to my GP countless times and I have seen two psychiatrists and I have been prescribed various anti-depressants and ADHD medications. I have also tried various diets but to no avail. I was fortunate to read a book on hypothyroidism and all of the symptoms fit me to a "T". I booked an appointment with my GP immediately after for a test for hypothyroidism about 3 weeks ago. I also bought an OTC supplement for hypothyroidism called Nature Raw Thyroid and within 2 hours of using it, I can feel a huge difference; I was more energetic and I could remember things far more easily. I still have not received my test's results due to a severe miscommunication between the hospital and my GP. I am hopefully going to get the test results by Tuesday now.
My questions are as follows;
1. Should I just keep taking only the supplement I am taking to prevent a drug interaction or should I risk adding whatever I am prescribed by my GP with it?
2. I have already ordered Nature-Throid online since NDT looks like the most effective treatment for hypo, am I going to be over medicating myself if I useall the medication together?
Your advices are highly welcomed.
