> All my thyroid screens have come back negative...however, I've heard that the basic testing that is done for initial purposes isn't that reliable. I've always wondered if there's been some sort of underlying problem--even if it's slight. >>

I felt the same way. I have always thought something else was wrong bc I am always tired and puffy. Cytomel def. seems to be working for me, too. I wonder if I should go up to 50. All of my tests are normal too, luckily my Pdoc trusts that it is working even thought tests arent showing a prob.

<<I went off the Cytomel as I was trying out some new therapies...when I did, I seemed to gain weight that I didn't attribute to the drugs I was taking (all supposed non-weight gaining ADs.)>>

Why didnt you stay on? Sounds like you should go back on now?

<< My doc says I am fine...thanks buddy.>>

Yeah. Heard that.

<< Maybe he's right...who knows...?>>

You know!~!!!

<<. Who knows...I may go back on it if I can't get out of this current funk (presumably caused by my Effexor withdrawal.) I'm pretty sure it could be used as an augmentation drug for Wellbutrin--my current drug of choice.>>

Wellbutrin is my fav, too but its wearing out. I hated effexor, I gained 25 lbs
Did you ever notice that your mood crashed worse when you were mentruating with the cytomel? I really crashed this week whe I had my period. I was wondering if the thyroid doesnt work as well at those times
