The med is Levothyroxine 0.100 mgs daily.
Not for me. Been five years. However, if your TSH is off or you are suffering from other conditions then depression would be something to look at.
Be sure you get regular TSH readings, work with an endocrinologist and the readings are between .5 to 3.0. This is the new normal range and not all doctors are on board. If too high you will be tired, irritable and general malaise. That does make thinking difficult.
Of course, aging, menopause and other illness can contribute to this. Along with other medications. More questions?
Not sure if you're question relates just to levothyroxine or a combination of meds. The thyroid testing can be really tricky and we can be increasingly symptomatic while our numbers remain in the normal range.
I'd encourage you to JOURNAL your experiences for discussion with the DR. It will have much more impact. If the sic is going strictly by the numbers you'll get the brush off.
I was diagnosed with Adult ADD a few years ago. Straterra has made a huge difference for me-lifted the fog so my memory, concentration and not misplacing things constantly has really improved.
As my wise friend Endless Pred mentioned above, your symptoms could also be classic signs of depression. Maybe it's time to have an appt with your DR and lay it all out there.
Please let us know how you're doing.
