So, if I'm on Synthroid but still have symptoms of depression, should I try T3 supplementation or an anti-depressant? I keep reading about T3 helping with depression in people with hypothyroidism. My hypothyroidism is very mild, but my depression is pretty bad. I also have PCOS. I'm so confused as to how it all fits together. I was on Lexapro for 5 years, and mysteriously end up hypothyroid. I went off Lexapro and on Synthroid. Lexapro actually was never a great deal of help, but I'm doing badly - I may try it again. I also take progesterone cream to regulate my menstrual cycles. I thought my ups and downs may have something to do with PCOS, but now I don't think so.
