Not really sure. Cytomel drove my anxiety nuts! (I am BP2). I faintly remember T4 doing similar as well. But, that was about 30 years ago when I was on it. I am thinking of asking my pdoc about trying very low-dose T4. I am very sensitive to the cold.

Someone said, they never fear a thing
Well, I do
And I'm afraid enough for both of us,
For me and you
Time, if nothing else, will do it's worst
So do me a favour, and tell me the good news first
