I have been taking levothyroxine since birth, (I'm 25 next month) I have regular blood tests every year and have been on the same dose for about 10 years.
I am going off sailing around the world next year for anything from 2 - 7 years. I have been wondering what to do about my medication. I ideally can't register at a local doctor, as I will be visiting so many different places and possibly not staying very long at each location. I know the NHS can give you 3 months worth of meds in one go, but that is not enough or practical as I will be sailing across the Atlantic etc and only having 3 months doesn't sort out the medication problem long term or allow for any emergencies.
I am unable to make an appointment with my doctor yet and was wondering if anyone knows whether a private prescription from a doctor would be able to give me 12 months worth of thyroxine in one hit? Or if any one has any other suggestions, that would be greatly appreciated!
