I have just returned from endo appt and have been told that although I have been on T3&T4 for three years that my gp will soon be stopped from prescribing T3 even though the endo agrees to me having it and my gp. Apparently it's the old post code lottery thing that the area health authority that I come under has decided that it is not cost effective and This the only thing that should be used. T3 was the saving of me -i was so ill on t4 alone and having learnt about T3 from the users of this site I read up about it and luckily my gp agreed to trial it. It was like a light bulb moment. Within days I felt like my old self and depression went, psoriasis went, brain fog went. I felt on top of the world but having had to fight for this in the first place I am devastated to be told I will no longer able to have it. The endo advised me to write to my member of parliament , which I will do, but wondered if your members had any comments to make. The endo covers a large area but only has 100 patients on T3 so they won't save much will they. Especially if they have to prescribe anti depressants skin ointment etc to compensate for the return of all my old symptoms. I am so stressed about it all and the unfairness.
