Ask your prescribing doc, who should have taken this carefully into account, but I don't see any reason why this ought to be a probelm. HOwever, I hope the underactive thyroid is being properly assessed and treated, because an undersactive thyroid in its own affects can look like depression, and if both are present, untreated low thyroid states may make a depression fail to respond to antidepressants.
