My new endo has after discussion, taken me off Levo which was at 150mcg daily and given me a daily total of 10mcg T3 split twice per day for 3 weeks. When I approached my surgery for a prescription, after 4 days of wrangling and a visit to the surgery on an emergency appt I am told it's a Double red?!! They can't prescribe it without the endo completing a form and declaring why he's prescribed it in triplicate. It's not green kryptonite - or is it? I am feeling slightly better (no change at all on increasing levels of Levo). So had a tortuous day contacting my endo, who settled for 7 more days prescription plus a blood test and a chat when he has those results. Is this a monetary issue - postcode lottery - or am I 'scoring heroine'?
Is 3 weeks enough of an indicator? Should I be taking Levo too? What's the best way forward please?
