I visited my Dr yesterday. Saying I can't sleep and feel hyper. I was ill all last week in bed which I thought was with a head cold and flu. I have dropped my medication in half in the hope that is why I can't sleep and maybe I was on too much liothyronine 40mgc. I have been taking sleeping pills to try and help with the situation. My Dr insists it's depression and I think thinks I am going through a manic episode. He gave me a prescription for Quetiapine and made an appointment for me to go back in 2 weeks. I will admit I have suffered with depression most of my life due to a bad upbringing and maybe thyroid. However I was on antidepressants for 26 years that didn't really help me. I don't know what to do. Is it thyroid or am I bi polar? It's driving me crazy trying to understand. I haven't started taking them yet as I had a blood test yesterday and want to wait to see what us going on with my thyroid. He said "You only have an under active thyroid' like it was nothing. I also have hashimotos. I'm so angry on one hand and wondering on the other.
Has anyone else been in this situation?
What did you do?
