How can I be treated for depression ?

Hi these are the drugs I was using constantly for 5 months. Cocaine Ecstasy Ketamine Heroin I only smoked once. Ive been clean for a month now from everything, but I now have extreme anxiety where I can barely go out in public places. I also have bad depression now. I m wondering if you can recommend any medications or anything that will help me with my anxiety/depression. Also are these effects permanent now or just withdrawal effects? Age:18, 17 when I was using drugs. Gender:Male Weight:129 I lost about 12 pounds when I started doing drugs.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
