> Recent augmentation of my treatments with T3 and T4 (to get the thyroid function into the upper-quartile range of "normal") have miraculously improved physiological responsiveness to AD and mood stabilizing meds.

Nancy - I'm delighted to hear thyroid augmentation was effective. It's a treatment that a lot of psychiatrists balk at. For my own education: how long did you have to wait for an effect, what doses of T3 and T4 were used, and did you get any side effects? I've had people complain of hair loss as well as sweats and diarrhoea. Thanks, Nick
