What brands of liquid levothyroxine, 25mcg are currently available on the UK market?

I think my hospital is trying to fob me off telling me that liquid levothyroxine need to be specially ordered/made ( I have asked for Eltroxin, as I have heard that Teva is not manufacturing it anymore/ had re-call problems)

I am assuming it is because the expense they are trying to make a fool out of me. I am really tired, and very depressed by the whole hypothyroidism/ getting medication battle. I cannot tolerate tablets as I have bad allergic reaction to them.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks Moggie, I did that. That was the first thing to do of course. I did show them the printout from thyroid uk list of medications, but it did not help. Ex

So does the hosp or your GP prescribe the liquid levo and if they have done so in the past why are they questioning it now?

Sorry I thought you were just asking about current brands - hence the link - but your saying that they want to stop your meds. Who, at the hosp, is trying to stop them your endo or the pharmacist?

I have recently been prescribed liquid t4 by GP. Local pharmacy got it in same day - it was Teva brand.

Would be interested to know if it has been recalled??
