Went to collect my prescription for my Levothyroxine today from my Pharmacy in my local Tescos. I also have an outstanding prescription for Liothyronine for reasons we all know. She came to the counter with my prescription for the Levothyroxine to tell me that for some reason there is a problem obtaining the Liothyronine and I should go back to my doctor and ask her to up my prescription for Levothyroxine as it is an alternative for Liothyronine and is exactly the same. Having explained the reason for the lack of Liothyronine I then spent 5 minutes explaining to her that Levothyroxine is not a substitute and telling her the difference between the two medications, T4 and T3!
I am now so annoyed I am going to write to my MP. Will be interesting to see his reply because on previous occasions when I have written to him on other matters I have received bog standard replies that have never answered my direct questions.
