I'm on Armour - prescribed by a consultant 4 hours away. I cannot get to see him for a further appointment and despite leaving heaps of messages with secretaries etc at the hospital he hasn't got back to me. Now I have one week of Armour tablets left and it's looking very unlikely I'll get any more for at least a few weeks, if then (as even if he sends me a new prescription without seeing me - which he may not do, - it'll still take the pharmacy at least a week to source it) What do I do? Do I just start taking thyroxine that I have in the cupboard from 6 months ago? Should I start phasing it back in gradually now or wait until I totally run out then start back on thyroxine - at least so i have some in my system. Or should I take some t3 - I also have some of that stashed away from a while back when it was given to me as a trial. I can't ask my GP as she will have NOT A CLUE what I should do! It's all SO confusing. I really feel like there's noone out there that can actually help me and give me confidence in the medications that i'm taking.
