Buying T4 online

Levothyroxine. Doctor wants to take me off as a locom prescribed the medication and my results were 'just abnormal' . I want to continue as I was feeling better. Can people advise as to where they purchased their t4 or t4/3 nline without a prescription, thank you

What were your results when the locum prescribed Levothyroxine and how much was prescribed?


Tsh 4.6 (range 0.5 to 4.5) free t4 12.6 (range 12 -22). Doctor prescribed 25mg trial  and blood test and review in 6 weeks.



Your GP would do better to be guided by the locum.  TSH is over range and FT4 bottom of range, you do need Levothyroxine.

Arrange your blood test early in the morning when TSH is highest and fast (water only) as TSH drops after eating and drinking.  Take Levothyroxine after the blood draw.
