    idk if this is the right place...maybe this should go under announcements...

    i recently learned that sometimes, if anti-depressants don't work for somebody, it could be caused by subclinical hypothyroidism...

    subclinical hypothyroidism has no symptoms...lab tests show elevated TSH, and normal levels of T3 and T4...it is not the same thing as hypothyroidism...

    we learned that, SOMETIMES, if you correct the subclinical hypothyroidism, then the person will respond to anti-depressants...

    i'm not saying this will work for everyone, nor am i giving medical advice (i am wayyyyyyyyyy underqualified)...but, if any of you out there have tried antidepressants and they have never worked in the first place (i don't think this holds true for the people who's medications STOPPED working), maybe try getting your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) levels tested...

    hope everyone is well...
