I am currently on 75mcg t4, no supplements. Also on birth control called logynon. On the sugar days I use an oestrogen patch as I cannot tolerate the hormonal fluctuations and migraines - I think I get deficient in oestrogen. I used to be on t4 + t3 and I was ok for a while dropping the t3 but now I have found myself incredibly cold, exhausted, and I hate to admit it but I think I'm depressed. I've seen the doctor but not gotten labs back. I think he forgot to measure ferritin. Has anyone eventually gotten depressed dropping t3? Also, this is my 4th bcp as I did not react well to the first 3 I've tried. I would self medicate again but I need the patches as my periods bring about terrifying migraines. I am not sure what to do at this point. I cannot stop crying and am just so tired. I am a mother of a toddler and I just cannot go on like this. I cannot even enjoy music. My cognitive function has gone downhill. I am emotionally brittle. I'm at a loss as to what to do now. I feel so alone and exhausted. Any input would be appreciated.
