I have sole decision making and primary guardianship of our child. A year later we decided that we could make another go of our relationship. My wife is in treatment and on medication.

Does anyone else think Synthroid doesn't completely work for them?

I am just wondering if anyone else still suffers symptoms of hypothyroidism even though they are taking their medication properly and their tests are coming back in the normal range.

Lithium and Synthroid?

supervision of my doctor. What was previously thought to be bipolar disorder was most likely emotional imbalance due to alcoholism and drug use. I have been clean and sober 9 months and during my last visit to the doctor I asked him if my bipolar symptoms were drug related and if I could stop taking the lithium to find this out. I have had no bipolar episodes since I've stopped taking it but my energy level is the lowest it has ever been. It literally feels like I cannot move at times. Is this due to stopping the lithium, the synthroid or both? Will my energy level eventually return to normal without MORE medication?
