> I have hypothyroidism. And that's where all my problems started. Even with the correct doseage of synthroid I continue to be anxious and depressed. You are very lucky you have found a med that works for you. Are you functioning, work, etc? I would give anything to be able to do that. Fondly, Phillipa

I've found that 1) I need an antimanic medication, 2) Many medications make things worse, so I take an antimanic med that works and I avoid the stuff that makes things worse. Lithium can mess with thyroid negatively and often isn't good for rapid-cyclers (true in my case), so I'm not on lithium any more, but on Depakote instead.
