My daughter (17) has recently (1 year) become depressed, drug useage, rebellious, flunking school, etc. She was a great student until 1 year ago and a normal, healthy child. After a short stint in the adolescent psychiatric ward due to ongoing strange behavior (bulemia, depression, substance abuse from alcohol/adderall/ecstacy/marijuana), she was sent home and put on Prozac 10 mg for depression. However, she told me that the Clinic had told her she had a thyroid condition, that I was never told about by the doctors that saw her. She is always tired (all day), has a red rash under her tongue, depressed, always cold (sometimes hot), her neck feels stiff and her stomach usually hurts her. I called the clinic and asked for the results to be faxed to her physician. TSH 15.170, Free T4 0.8, Free T3 3.4. The other things in bold on her test were MCHC 30.8 (L), Lymph% 17.9 (L), Mono% 7.1 (H), BUN 22 (H), Protein, Urine Trace!, Clarity Cloudy!. Her regular Physician told us to see an Endocrinologist and put her on IC Levothroxine 25mcg tab myl 1 a day until we can get an appointment, while continuing her Prozac. I am finding it difficult in Cleveland Ohio to get into an Endocrinologist and some are booked out 6 months!!! I am afraid to let her continue the Prozac, and feel a lot of her depression may be from the Hypothyroidism? Should I give her the Levothroxine now, before she is seen by an Endocrinologist? Help!!!!!
