> Ok - so I got resluts that show my tsh at 3.276 and my pdoc says that's perfectly normal, even though I have tons of signs for hypothyroid - I called to get an appointment with endocrinaolgist and the first avaiable appt is in OCTOBER!!
> So - my question to you all - is there something I can do now to help my tsh level come down? Is there an OTC version of the meds?

No, but you could try selenium (200 mcg/day). There are enzymatic conversions of the various thyroid hormones (T4 and T3 variants) which depend on selenium-containing enzymes. There's also another process that is inhibited by selenium, so it's rather a crapshoot. More likely to work for you than work against you, though.

> BTW I am on zoloft (150mg) wellbutrin (300mg) depakote (1000mg) and risperdal (.5mg) - although the last 2 are new(within the last 6 monts) and for the life of me I cannot think of a manic period in my life - but my pdoc says bi-polar II.

Mania and hypomania are not always pure highs. Irritability, sleep disturbance, certain types of hyperactivity, "noisy brain"....there are different kinds of mania.
