From this study (2 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.
From this study (3 months ago):
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.
From this study (5 months ago):
took a echocardiogram and it said I have mild to moderate pulmonary hypertension,peak right ventricular systolic pressure at 44
