I was diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism about 2 weeks ago. About 1 year ago, I had a physical done and my blood work was perfect. I have been taking the generic for Zoloft, Sertraline, for about 8 months now. I did another physical 3 wks ago, and it showed my TSH levels off and my Cholesterol as 276 with high LDL cholesterol also. My HDL level was high, which is great. I exercise and eat very healthy.
My question is, if Sertraline caused the hypothyroidism, which I have found several articles that imply it could've, will stopping the medication automatically reverse my subclinical hypothyroidism without taking medicine to offset my thyroid levels?
