  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Concerned could have Serotonin Syndrome....not sure how long body takes to adjust to change in meds. From 100mcg.Synthroid to 75mcg then 5mcg
    Cytomel added...have been on Pristiq (100mg for 5 years with one adjustment and little to no adverse side effects)...been on Synthroid for 44 years. Could the Cytomel be adversely interacting with the Pristiq??? Symptoms remind me of issues I have had with my Hashitoxicosis...please advise.

  • I have been on the levo for 2 years so I know that's fine. I have been on the cytomel for a few months but just recently increased the dose by 5 mcg. I also quit smoking at the same time. The discharge is yellow and does not smell or itch.
