“Some of us are on endocrine supplement medication.”

What side effects do those meds have?

Are they the same types given for anxiety etc?

No, not at all. The endocrine system is regulatory: from what I know so far, pituitary is responsible for growth, thyroid for metabolism, and parathyroid for feeding the brain. My thyroid is being treated with meds because it’s naturally slow, haven’t had the pituitary checked, and my parathyroid is overactive, requiring surgery to fix the problem.
