I have heard that Lithium can affect thyroid function.
I am aged 35 and have been taking thyroid hormones since aged 16 due to Hashimotos Disease. My psychiatrist wants me to trial Lithium to help my Depression in addition to taking the antidepressant I am on.
Is this a good idea, or could it affect my thyroid hormone levels in a negative way or will it not matter that most of my thyroid gland has probably already been destroyed by the Hashimotos?
I would be grateful if anyone has any knowledge/experience of this.
Many Thanks ad blessings to you all.
