I didn't see mentioned whether "thyroid supplementation" included T3 as well as T4- other than the original Armour medication, which contains both. I think, from my own experience, that it is very important in treating depression with associated thyroid abnormalities to take both T3 and T4- and the ideal TSH to aim for is at the very low end of normal- mine is presently 0.84, which my endocrinologist considers ideal. It's hard for me to say definitely that this has helped. as I am also taking fish oil, and am just finishing up a successful course of TMS. Truthfully, I think every one of these things has been important..
