That's interesting...about the Tyrosine...I tried that years ago for the depression but it didn't do a thing. I've been on several meds over the last year so it's really hard to chart a course re: the weight gain. Some were supposed to not add any extra pounds, others...? Let's see...Effexor, Serzone, Moclobemide, Remeron...now Wellburtin and Celexa. These last two might be a good combination for loosing some weight supposedly. Perhaps once I start feeling better I might be able to exercise a bit more as well...that always helps! Thanks for all your wonderful information about the Cytomel. Who knows, maybe my Thyroid is just taking longer to get back to it's normal level of functioning?
