There is indeed some evidence that some of the SSRI's like Zoloft , Paxil and Prozac can reuce the effectiveness of thyroid tabs and you would need to discuss this possibility with your doctor. Also, a low thyroid state can both mimic Depression or worsen depression, and reduce the effectiveness of antidepressants unless it it also treated.
