In the answers to my first question here (telling the awful history of my hypo illness), someone very kindly mentioned that psychiatrists are able to prescribe thyroid med. I've seen two over the last 20 years, but I now know my 'insanity' was lack of thyroid med. How long have psychiatrists been able to prescribe T4/T3? I very clearly told both of them that I had been diagnosed in 1981 with an extremely under active thyroid. I'm still fuming over the behaviour of GPs, consultants, endos, psychiatrists et al ! (smiley face - at least I can smile nowadays)
