Docs don't typically give T3. They give it if you have hyperthyroidism or have all of the symptoms without the lab findings. Thyroid medications are usually taking for the rest of one's life. The hormones are doing for the thyroid what it can't do for itself. So, it wouldn't be advised to add hormones in the system that aren't needed.

How long have you been on Prozac? I found that I developed apathy after 2.5 years of use. I simply could not cry or laugh at anything. I was emotionally numb. I simply got off of it. I got off of it gradually. I would have tried adding Buspar to it years ago, but I didn't know what I do now.

10 mg of Prozac is considered a very low dosage. Prozac is stimulating, so it may be responsible for the insomnia as well. Have you tried Lexapro? It seems helpful for mild anxiety. If you do start, start at 2.5 or 5 mg. I too am very sensitive to medications and I started at 5 mg. I still went thru several weeks of adjustment. It maybe helpful if you list the meds you tried, response and dosage. Maybe I or someone else can help solve this difficulty.
