DEAR DR. ROACH: Do you know of any problems with lithium interfering with levothyroxine? My 35-year-old daughter has taken levothyroxine for 12 years and started lithium a year ago for bipolar disorder. Ever since, her TSH has gone higher, and her dose has gone up every time her blood has been tested. She just told me she stopped taking the lithium a month ago due to the fact that she feels sluggish, her hair is thinning a lot and she's gaining weight. What should she do? She needs to see an endocrinologist, but she won't have insurance for six more weeks. -- B.V.
