I was originally prescribed the 'old' Eltroxin when it was manufactured by Smith Kline I believe. Years ago my GP switched me on to levothyroxine which didn't really suit me. I asked to go back on Eltroxin but was told that it was the same under a different name and more expensive. I stayed on these tablets for years until visiting NZ to see my son who is also on replacement thyroxine. He was prescribed Eltroxin and I obtained a prescription. The NZ Eltroxin tablets came in a bottle, not bubble wrapped and are fatter than my UK tablets. They suited me much better, just as they had years ago. I came back to the UK and asked my GP to prescribe Eltroxin and acquired Goldshield Eltroxin 100 microgram bubble wrapped tablets which appear identical to the Levothyxine tablets produced by Mercury Pharma (and indeed appear to be manufactured on the same premises). Question : What has happened to the different Eltroxin tablets currently available in NZ and formerly available in UK (fatter tablets sold in bottles, rather than bubble packs). They were clearly much better for me than what is currently being offered by Goldshield/Mercury Pharma. Where can I get them in the UK ?
