I think you are taking FAR too much Cytomel for someone who is basically euthyroid (i.e. normal), and already on a moderate dose of synthroid. You only need a little bit- somewhere between 2,5 and 5.0 mcg twice a day- NOT MORE! If you are so close , or at normal, to begin with, you may even need to lower your synthroid to something below 50 mcg. To help with depression, the goal is to get to a TSH of 0.5 or a bit lower, using a combination of Synthroid and Cytomel, but in very low amounts. I think I mentioned above that I take VERY low doses of both- see above- and have gotten to a TSH of 0.38 This has helped with the depression, I think, although it's hard to be sure because of the other things I've done also, but it's very good with weight loss- I've lost 45 lbs. since starting the thyroid meds, having gotten quite overweight with various AD's. Just don't forget that with a thyroid as normal as yours, the very lowest doses of synthroid and Cytomel should do everything that's needed.
