Endo prescribing T3 in Berks / Oxon/ Hants/London

Dear All,

It is a very long time since I have posted. I was diagnosed in 2006 and my GP finally got down to treating me in 2009. In despair I saw Dr Peatfield and he advised me that I needed to take T3 as my experience with Armour showed that I could not use T4. This has all worked well until the place where I buy my T3 has changed the brand and I no longer feel that the medicine is working.

Combined with this, I am being treated for Complex Trauma due to a prolonged campaign of workplace bullying, and am taking 220mg of Venlafaxine, 120mg of antihistamine as I am allergic to the anti-depressant and 250mg of Narproxen for osteoarthritis in my hands.

I have noticed that my hypo symptoms have been gradually returning and realise that I need to find a NHS source of T3 as I am guessing my doses. I would be very grateful if anyone knows of an endo anywhere in the London / Berkshire / Oxon /Hants areas and could tell me, possibly by PM, as I realise that one cannot place names on the forum.

Have you checked thyroid levels recently? Thyroid function can deteriorate and you may need a higher dose. It's best to have a thyroid test to guide dosing than to guess. If your GP won't do FT3 tests you can order private thyroid tests from Blue Horizon and Genova via


Sadly this entire area has banned any new prescriptions of T3
