Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
I am a Type 1 diabetic on insulin pump therapy with the continuous glucose monitoring link. I also take a Sertraline pill a day to take the edge off, but do not always take it on time during the hectic weekends/holidays. The past 2 days (day 3 and 4 of Tamiflu medication) had episodes where my blood sugar plummeted and I experienced very altered states -- last night it was dream-like and I blacked out/don't remember about an hour with my family and today it was emotional and fitful.
From this study (2 months ago):
Not sure what's going on but my mood is improved except if I feel any hunger I get completely unreasonable. I've been bruising very easily -more than I used to.
From this study (3 months ago):
I was well before starting levothyrox
