I take synthroid 0.112mg 1 per day and cytomel 25 mcg 3 times a day. I was put on them by my therapist and have been on them for a year now. He said after going to a seminar and learning more about it that some people do much better on the higher dose. I was one who did thrive well on them. I was no longer depressed, I lost 50 pounds (even though some of my meds cause weight gain) plus I have had so much more energy. Well at the beginning of Sept last year we got a new family Dr who didn't know anything about what my therapist had learned. Anyway yes it was my fault because I'm always afraid to speak up to a Dr. so when he lowered my Synthroid to 0.75. I started to gain weight and get depressed. After the third month I went to him and explained everything and told him what was going on. He asked me to give him a week to learn about it. He then put it back to wear it was. The problem is, nothing is happening. I guess I was off the synthroid to long and now that it's back up they aren't working. I don't know what to do. Can anyone help me?????? I can't put the weight back on nor do I want the depression to come back. I was thinking of going off the cytomel for a month or two and staying on the synthroid and then bringing back the cytomel like it was starting the first time I was going to go on it does anyone know if that would work?
