I’m suffering from depression and am struggling with my thyroid medication in that the only one that has worked for me is Nature Thyroid and I can’t get hold of any. I was on it for just under three months before the global shortage. I’ve tried Armour, Erfa and synthetic T3 and T4 and all gave me horrendous side-effects. I’m now having my adrenals tested but that’s taking ages and I’m getting desperate as I can’t go on feeling the way I feel. My Doctor has prescribed prozac but I’ve been too scared to take it incase it interferes with my thyroid function and makes things worse, as this happened before when I was taking a low dose of amitriptyline and citalopram. (I think they caused my thyroid contition to worsten). I’ve been hoping I could get some more Nature Thyroid and it would sure all my problems but now I’m not so sure.
Does anyone know if it is advisable to take antidepressants if you have an untreated underactive thyroid? (In my case I’m not converting T4 to T3 properly). And if so, which are the best ones? Any advice much appreciated!
