> It all depends on what they're testing for. Hormonal and endocrine problems can be detected in tests, as well as a score of other things. It's impossible to tell what he's thinking except that definitely a thyroid test would be included. Hyper- and hypo- thyroidism can cause emotional disturbances. I am a medical technologist (lab tech with a B.S. degree).
My p-doc asked me to get a thyroid test after he prescribed my my first AD last year, celexa. (I just added it on to my blood test that I needed for Accutane). It came out fine.

So that's what confuses me, I don't know of what else he could find beyond the thyroid that he could fix... and I've also gotten routine blood tests up until August for my Accutane therapy, and they came out fine for cholesterol and minerals and that stuff.

I do get severe dry mouth from antichollinergics, so I have to take Evoxac, which activates the endocrine glands. Which unfortunately causes me to sweat a bit...
