> I take cytomel, 12.5 mcg per day, as well as synthroid (t4), 25 mcg perday. When I added them, and I really don't remember which was added first, I think it might have been the cytomel, I do remember significant mood improvement within a week. I also had extreme sleepiness at the time, which turned out to be from the sleep apnea, but the thyroid meds definitely helped my mood.
> Lithium can cause hypothyroid. Did you check your t3, t4, and tsh levels?
> At the moment, I am waiting on blood tests to see if I need an increase in my thyroid meds, because I have been sleepy and very low on energy for the past couple of weeks. Everything tires me out. I am wondering if the lithium, which I just started 2 months ago, might have upset the balance.
> Good luck.

The doc did a series of thyroid test on me, totaling around 6 specific thyroid test (t3 and t4 of course) and all came back "normal". He recently read / went to a seminar re: bascially, when thyroid test are "normal" but may not be normal. The ranges are set up that some people have a thyroid issue, but the test do not indicate so. In my case the T3 was added for the hypothermia. Best wishes and blessings,
