Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, the symptoms which you feel is not due to thyroxin that is due to prednisolon tab . these are most common side effect of prednisolon.
hypothyroidism is not cause of depression. so take that tab continue.

Thanks for the query. How much was your TSH? Are u getting treated for sub clinical hypothyroidism? RA needs treatment for a very long time and there is nothing called 'cure' for RA. I would like to know what multivitamins u are taking because 'stem cells' are not multivitamins. Have a healthy living
