I have just been told that T3 is not availible due to a large amount being recalled. I was only given half my Prescription intially and when I went to collect the rest today I was told that the chemist had none. They are going to contact my GP tomorrow to ask for alternatives. I fear this will be more T4 which will mean I cannot function properly. I have three children, a full time job and elderly/sick in-laws. T3 at least gave me a fighting chance to cope with all this. Is this a nation wide problem and has anyone got any suggestions of alternatives to T4 that I can suggest to the GP given that most appear to be in the dark ages regarding thyroid treatment?
