Why would a doctor give you T4 to help augment Zoloft? That doesn't make any sense to me. If anything, he would add cytomel. What I can gather from your post is that you have borderline hypothyroidism? If you are only borderline, 100mcg is quiet a bit to be takeing. I just don't get it. I mean, a low dose of thyroxine is 25mcg or 50mcg. some people even take 12 or 37... but 100? Something is not clicking. I think you really, really need to follow up with your doctor or find a good endo to help you get your thyroid controlled. Honestly, once you get your thyroid levels straightened out, you may have no need for the Zoloft. (Most doctors only pay attention to the TSH which is crap -- your TSH needs to be below 2 & most people don't feel good until it's more like 1 and it's also VERY, VERY important that you get your Free T3 &O Free T4 tests done) Anyhow -- hope this helps some.
