Had total tyrosine tommy in 2011 and taking 100mcg of levothyroxine. I have developed tiredness over the past 6months and anxiety attack over the past 2 weeks. My anxiety symptoms seems to have been controlled by .25mg of xanax. Could this anxiety symptoms: nausea, dizziness, chest pains all caused by hypo? If I take .25 xanax just as needed will I have issues of dependency?

Pls help. Thanks.

I'm not an MD, but taking your meds are prescribed (prn in your case) and only .25mg shouldn't present a problem to you. But you can always discuss this with your doc and express your concerns.

Your thyroid condition, as you may have been told, may cause anxiety problems and the symptoms you are describing could be related to that. But, again, that's something you and your doc need to discuss.
