Hi.. Your TSH is getting so high! Do you have to stay with Lithium, or is another mood-stabilizer a possibility?

My endocrinologist thinks that an important aspect of treating depression is keeping the TSH between 0.5 and 1.0, and also using cytomel as well as synthroid, in case you are a person who doesn't convert the synthroid to T3 naturally. (I'm sure this is all stuff you know ).It didn't resolve my depression, but I do think it helped it become less severe after about a month. (And after 15 TMS treatments I am feeling great- I just have to keep putting that into my posts, as I know not many people have had it, so it's basically an unknown).

I hope you can get your TSH low again!
