Doc wants to put me on a low dose of Zoloft
I have a question and hoping for an answer.. I was diagnosed with Hashis this past May. I was initially put on Armour .25 and was doing pretty well on it once my body adjusted. I was advised by my doc to go to an Endo since it is an auto- immune disease. Endo immediately put me on Synthroid .15 and told me to take it for 3 months. I never made the 3rd month because I was not sleeping and was irritable, stressed out, with panic attacks My hubby noticed the change and I knew I was not myself either.. I went back to the Endo and she stated that since she does not write Armour that she was in agreement that I go off the synthroid and have my primary write Armour again and go back on it. My bloodwork was done and my levels had not changed much since diagnosis except my T4s were even lower but within normal range down from 1.32 to .88 . T-3 at 1.1 from 1.2. I asked her why she did not check my thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobin antibodies. My Endo stated that she does not test for that once diagnosed because all it tells is that I have the disease and it was already determined from the last bloodwork. Anyways, I went back on the Armour and started feeling better. That was in late October. Now I am getting the panic attacks back. My doc wants to put me on a low dose of Zoloft because I have been experiencing some anxiety as well as the panic attacks. I just feel like I had less issues before the diagnosis!I never had panic attacks before. Has anyone else experienced this? Any input would be greatly appreciated… Sorry for the long post..
