Armour thyroid

Hi there I have hashimotos, my docs put me on levothyroxine which I didnt get on with so I asked for armour but my docs after months of asking wont prescribe it. I found so forest armour on <an internet source> whicg ive been taking. Ive rang

My endo to tell them the docs wont prescribe it but I know a chemist I can buy them, the trouble is they wont give me a prescription. Was wondering if there is anywhere in uk I can buy forest armour thyroid in uk, very frustrating as im running out of tablets. Just think its wrong that because of cost they wont give you something you need to stay well, makes me feel disheartened with the medical profession! I

hi,

It's illegal to buy prescription meds in the uk, without a prescription, so you have no hope of buying it here. However, its not illegal to import medication for your own use, so you can buy without prescription from abroad.

How come you chose armour? Its the most expensive brand available. There are plenty of other Ndt's around, some are much much cheaper. Some of the brand names are Westthroid, naturethyroi, Thiroyd, thyroid S, NP by Acella, Erfa..... All contain the same amounts of thyroid hormone ( more or less) but they have different fillers.

I had just read good things about it so thought id give it a try and its made a big difference to the way I feel so if it aint broke dont fix it is my approach coz I dont like feeling like a quinypig try stuff that may not effect me the same way. The levothyroxine made me feel aweful and I dont want that again

Hi Paul,

WP Thyroid is good, I imported some from the US.

100 2 grain tablets was £66, including import duty. I take one grain, so half a tablet each day is just about affordable.
