HelloThe meds you are currently on can have these side effects.Adding another drug is not a good idea.The thyroid might not be OK even if in the "normal" range. You must know the exact value of TSH.Adderrall would not be prescribed for your symptoms at this point, your other meds would be adjusted, andthyroid, adrenal, sex hormone problems, anemia, iron deficiency, and underlying diseases must all be ruled out.I am a double board certified US doctor.Find me anytime for fast and accurate answers.Dr. thomas only.OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
