I had TT in late March 2011, and RAI in late august. My endo keeps my TSH -1 (0,0..) , and I've been too anxious, with palpitations and tired the last few months. It is a long story, but a psychiatrist prescribed my 40mg of paroxetine (Paxil). I don't want to take it, because it is too much and I don't want to feel sedated and become dependent.
But he didn't listen and didn't discuss anything and made me sign a letter of commitment for treatment. I had to sign it, if not I wouldnt meet the psychologist.
I WANT TO SAY I tried it but it was bad, and want to suggest something else, so that they see I tried an don't get mad at me! I am so afraid of taking these pills (I've read about th e side effects, and mad stories) I don't want any pills, but if there is something that has worked for you I could suggest that. Have you taken anxiety meds because of your hyper symptoms? Thanks
