I managed to get some T3 today from my Tesco pharmacy, although not all that were ordered on the prescription. I take 40mg daily along with 150 mg of T4. I told her that I had read there would be no more T3 manufactured until June she told me that when Manufacturers have done a certain amount and they consider they have issued enough, they stop manufacturing because what happens is some disreputable pharmacists order a lot and then they sell them abroad! She said it is well known that this happens and in a lot of cases they know who they are but nothing is done about it. She stressed that Tesco do not do this! She had already phoned around to see if any other local pharmacy had any but they were all out of stock. When I said I had read that Asda may have some she tried them but was very curtly told they did not deal other pharmacies. She also told me that there is plenty of T3 available in 5mg dose but because it is much more expensive doctors won't prescribe it!
