Brian, as far as I'm aware thyroid medication is only available on prescription in Spain but I will PM you online sources. Your TSH is high enough to cause symptoms but your wife's TSH is in the right area. Both of you have lowish FT4 and low FT3. If you and your wife are experiencing clinical symptoms you ought to have your vitaminD, B12 and folate tested before self medicating with NDT as deficiency symptoms can be very similar to hypothyroid symptoms and low vitaminD can inhibit conversion of T4 to T3. The ferritin of both of you is good.

TSH is naturally elevated in over 60-80s

I had a TSH of 1 and I was very hypothyroid. I would not feel good with a FT3 of 3.82 and antibodies, which means it's auto-immune. Your wife might benefit from taking selenium for the antibodies;
