Will the intake of vybriid good for hashimotos disease?

I have Hashimotos disease and I get down because of my symptoms. Would taking Vybriid do more harm than good? I am not taking any thyroid hormones presently because my numbers fall into normal range. Wouldn't it make more sence to treat the cause of the symptoms ,that depress me, than the depression?

Hi...vybriid is an antidepressant...it can cure your depression but not hashimoto...which is the cause... you should not stop your hormones as it will flare up...its an autoimmune disease leading to destruction of your thyroid... so hormone replacement is essential...
