Im so glad that I am forgiven. Now Ill be able to sleep nights. :-)

I sometimes get the impression that T4 is underutilized when treating affective disorders. I am curious as to why T4 was added and how you feel it has helped with depression or changed your overall thyroid balance. What criteria, clinical or measurment, determine when either T4 or T3 or both are to be used? How regularly will you be having your thyroid levels checked?

Thanks.

Just so that you know It looks like Eli Lilly, the manufacturer of Prozac, will be coming out soon with an Effexor-like drug called duloxetine. I dont know how it compares to Effexor with respect to side effects. I guess if it aint broke, dont fix it. Well see.
