is this from my thyroid?

I have hypothyroidism I take 125mcgs of levothyroxine I am also on antidepressants my dr. told me it was ok to take them around them same time. I am not so sure b/c I am still tired all the time I have headaches when I wake up . I just had to get Rx glasses b/c my vision went bad when before I didn't wear any glasses. I have pain on my spine in the upper region I have puked and I feel dizzy a lot. I noticed where my thyroid is located it looks swollen and my mom noticed it right away that it was prominently sticking out ,  could all my problems be from my thyroid  being low or high because of another rx interaction????

It sounds to me like you are having symptoms from your antidepressant....I think I would talk to your Dr about this. There are many different types and kinds so maybe there is a better option for you.
When was the last time you had your thyroid labs done? Do you remember what they were?
Also the rule of thumb is to never take anything else at the same time as your thyroid meds......always at least a 2 hr window. Iron and calcium needs to be taken hours away from thyroid meds....as it interferes with absorption of your meds.
