Where can I get Novothyral ?

Hi there; this is my first post and I would appreciate your advice and support !

After years of unsuccessful treatment for my Hashimotos I have finally found a wonderful Endocribologist who has discovered that despite taking levothyroxine for years, I am still symptomatic as my body is not converting the T4 to T3 - in fact my latest T3 testing revealed extremely low levels.

Anyway, he has prescribed Novothyral 100mcg as a month long trial produced very encouraging results - however this medication is not available in my country of origin, nor the country I am currently living and working in.

I understand the rules preclude posting details of pharmacies, but if anyone knows where I can get Novothyral or T3 online, with a prescription, written by a German Endocribologist, i would be extremely grateful for a PM.

At this stage, the only advice I have received is to fly to a European country to avail myself of this medication - rather extreme & expensive .....but it may have to come to that if I cannot find an online alternative !

Thank you for reading :)

So, from what I can work out, Novothyral is a synthetic drug containing 100mcg of levothyroxine and 20mcg of liothyronine - is that right?

I'm sorry, I should have explained that further; you are quite correct with the dosage, Jazzw

Timmersby, as you have a prescription one of the online pharmacies in the link below may be able to source it for you.
