> Jelly the fear now is what is keeping it from working at a much lower dose. Unless the blood drawn today indicates thyroid still not right. I did well for many years on short acting xanax then for some reason it started to make me feel tired. Maybe I converted to depression then? That's when I started valium again but I didn't get the ahhh feeling I got when I took it in my 20's. So I guess tolerance does build. But to change so drastically in a few weeks is so strange and scarey. Love Phillipa ps you done any studying of hasimotos and graves? Lar wrote yesterday basically they are the same which I still don't get. Brain not doing well.

Hey Phillipa,
The way I understand Hashimotos is that antibodies attack the thyroid and the result is eventually so much damage that you become hypothyroid. However, as the thyroid attempts to do its job there is a sort of sputtering effect. Sometimes it will spit out too much hormone (hyperthyroid or graves) then the levels will fall again.

This is a frustrating situation. About the time you get somewhat leveled out it will switch.

I read Anna Nicole's autopsy report and it showed she had Hashi's. Poor woman. No wonder her weight was a problem and emotions as well.

I hope they figure this out for you. There are foods you can eat that will help if you are hyper. Cabbage, brussel sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower are some.

I went too high on my thyroid hormone and I can relate to how you feel. Miserable. Meg/cal supps helped. Taurine and potassium (use lite salt)Also l-theanine.

This will not last much longer so try not to fret and just take it easy.

Peace,
Kaye
