Hi Barbaracat!

>She's put me on SUBLINGUAL bioidentical sex hormones and it has made all the difference.

That's interesting, there aren't any sublingual hormones on the market here, we do have hormones in the form of a nasal spray though! (Aerodiol)

>Synthroid and Cytomel.

Have you ever taken Synthroid on its own? In your experience, is it more effective to take Synthroid and Cytomel in combination?

When I've worked in pharmacies in the UK, we get trillions of prescriptions for T4 every day. I've never once seen a prescription for T3 though!

>How are you doing with it?
>.....is there anything that's helping you with your symptoms?

I'm not doing too badly at the moment thank you, I don't have any severe symptoms right now.

I'm just on lofepramine 140mg. It's quite similar to desipramine- which isn't marketed here. I often taken an SSRI for my OCD, not at the moment though. My symptoms come in 'episodes,' they always have done. I don't have OCD atm but I may do in the future. If so, I'll need to go back on an SSRI, probably citalopram. I've never tried sertraline though, I might try that next time. SSRIs don't do much for my depression, if I get really depressed in future I'd like to try an MAOI. Lofepramine is ok for my depression but not great.

Regards,
Ed.
