I was diagonised with an under active thyroid June 2015 and told I was very poorly, my results were quite bad.Doc gave me Levo and I took a big nose dive. Tried me on another brand and I reacted so badly I refused to take anymore. Doc referred me to Endo with a 3 month wait for appointment.
I started buying Arnour thyroid and by time I saw Endo I was feeling great. Endo went mad I was self medicating and took bloods, which came back just slightly above 'normal' range
Which only confirmed to me that I was right on track with self medicating. My doctor agreed to give me Armour on prescription. That is until today. He has now decided that it is illegal to give me Armour and has refused me a NHS prescription but will give me a private one. He has done this and left me with no tablets.
I have told him that I refuse to take any other tablets as they make me so poorly that I cannot function. I can't afford to order these privately so what now . He has said that I either go back on Levo or become very poorly again.
How can they justify doing this to a person. Has anyone else received this abrupt withdrawal of medication
Will armour be cheaper on a private prescription or buying these direct from overseas. They are currently £170 for 5 grains (100 tablets)
Any advice would be great. Thank you in advance X
