I had my thyroid removed almost 3 years ago due to cancer and I have had ADD all my life. I have been having a really hard time lately figuring out the right med because I have been sooooo tired with everything. Finally I stopped all ADD meds and upped my throid meds a bit and suddenly I feel great. My memory is better and because my thyroid levels are better I have energy and therefore find I don't put things off. I think even my impulsivness has improved as I'm not eating everything in the house. I still feel somewhat disorganized and may start back on meds for that but I'm wondering if anyone else has found this? I don't think that I was misdiagnosed - I believe I do have ADD but that maybe my symptoms were worse because the dose of thyroid meds was off.
