Underactive thyroid

I have been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid, my TSH level was 10.9. I saw an endocrynologist and he prescribed Euthyrox 1.0 daily. I then had my TSH levels checked 3 weeks later and it was 8.0. The endocrynologist then prescribed Euthyrox 1.5 daily. I have manged to loose 6kgs. I''ve been on this increased dosage for 3 weeks now and will go for bloods again in another 3 weeks time.
My problem is, is that I am starting to feel very anxious and unable to get breath. I did consult with my GP and she prescribed 1x Adco-Talomil 20mg daily as she said I was also depressed and lacking serotonin - symptom from my thyroid problem . I have now been taking the Adco-Talomil for 3 weeks and I actually feel worse.
As I started both medication (the Euthyrox increased dosage and the ADs) I don''t know which one is making me feel like this. I am still very anxious, feels like I can''t breath, have IBS issues now too and had a panic attack on Monday which scared me very much.
Please help!

Apologies for the delayed response, but I have been away from my computer for a few days. This question is better directed to the psychiatrist (CyberShrink) or CyberDoc, as your question is more medical than psychological or eating disoder-related.
