I am going to see a Private Doc tomorrow hopefully to get a prescription for Cynomel by Sanofi Aventis. I have not been getting along with any of the other T3 medications including Liothyronine, Tiromel, and Cynomel by Grossman.
I have phoned up a few local pharmacies to try and get a price and find out if they can get it for me and I am getting nowhere as usual. You would think I was trying to obtain an illegal substance from the way I am spoken to by these untrained Pharmacy Staff. It became clear that even the Head Pharmacist in two Chemists I phoned had never heard of it either. I digress.
Does anyone know of a pharmacy that could order this in for me at a reasonable price? I did manage to get price from the Cooperative Pharmacy in the end, but I'm not prepared to pay it. £160 for 84 tabs which I think is outrageous. I am on £6.20 an hour. It will work out over £1000 for my medication costs yearly. And I am supposed to be exempt from prescription charges on the NHS. What a joke. Even if THEY could just write a script for T3 from Greece I would give that a go. At two euros a pop it's worth a shot. And would save them so much money, but that would be a logical solution to an ongoing problem. And as most of us can attest, the NHS don't do 'logical'.
