Comment:
I had anxiety attacks when I was taking synthroid. I have no insurance and am broke so have put off renewing the prescription, (can't renew without a 70.00$ office visit and expensive blood test). However in the process of refraining from the drug the anxiety went away. Ill soon have to take something for the hypothyroid however.
