Our expert says:
Having the Thyroid hormone test will not be harmful as abnormal thyroid function can cause depression or anxiety symptoms. You can go op to 40 mg with your Fluoxetine if the 20 mg is not working. It may be worth your while to also see a phsycologist to teach you some stress relieving techniques you can help yourself with when you feel very anxious. For depression, regular exercise (30 min a day) is very helpful as it increases the endorphins (good feeling hormones) in the brain.
