Before starting ANY antidepressant you should see a good endocrinologist who can rule out hypothyroidism. A good endocrinologist needs to be familiar with combined T4/T3 treatment and understand treating the patient and not just the lab test numbers.

A high TSH indicates hypothyroidism but what WAS a high normal is now treated. Many doctors are not aware that the normal range for TSH has changed and that replacement therapy for hypothyroidism should probably end up with the TSH level in the bottom 25% of the new normal range.

Losing weight may be impossible if your hypothyroidism is under treated.
