I have been on T3 only for quite a long time but have had a very erratic time on it. My amazingly helpful and knowledgeable new GP has suggested that I try adding in a little T4 for stability. When I last took T4 I responded badly to one brand but did a bit better on Eltroxin. I have just been to Boots and they can't get hold of it. Is it no longer available?
My other question is - how much does Natural Dessicated Thyroid cost? My new GP is happy to prescribe it (several of her patients do very well on it) but I would need to find the best place to get it if I go down that route.
I did feel very unwell on the T4/T3 combination in the past, although was probably on too big a dose of both. I am currently contemplating whether to do the T4/T3 experiment again on a much smaller does (this is working well for a friend) or just go direct for the natural dessicated.
All best wishes and many thanks for any help.
