male thyroid problems

hi all
im 43 and male
i have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and in the last 2.5 years i have had biopsy's and pit tests and scans  as well as every other test going
i started on thyroxetine 25mg and in 2.5 years i went upto 225 and am now back down to 125 i hit every dose in that range and currently take 125 one day 150 the next
i have grown  breasts as the levels were so wrong

im also having to take testosterone replacement as those levels were low also

i am currently depressed and saw a specialist but they are reluctant to prescribe antidepressants as my thyroid still isnt under control
am i expected to get more and more depressed and not be given a antidepressant because of this

this has been going on for 2.5 years now will it ever get any better
currently having bloods done bi-monthly by my doctor
but my endo specialist i see once every 6 months
thats if he hasnt cancelled the appointment on me without letting me know like they did last time

thanks for your replies

On what basis do they make the decision to change your dosage of meds?  Is it based on symptoms, or on TSH level?  

Also, please post your thyroid test results and their reference ranges shown on the lab report, so that members can assess the adequacy of your testing and treatment.
