Morning sorry I am on a roll here today with my questions. I have suffered from depression ever since I was 14, diagnosed with Asthma at 18 and suffered severe tiredness from early twenties together with psoriasis and severely flaking nails. I didn't know the cause of these things back then it's only knowing what I know now and with the help of this forum that I realise most of these symptoms were probably an undiagnosed Underactive Thyroid. I was eventually prescribed Antidepressants in my early 40s and eventually medication for the Underactive Thyroid. However I am still taking the Antidepressants and I have noted from others questions about them that you say that they must not be taken because it will make the Thyroid problem worse! I am not sure what to do now because the antidepressants have kept me on an even keel for the past 8 years! I would love to hear your views about the effect on the Thyroid and why are Antidepressants a big no no thank you.
