As I read it there is scope for consultants and specialists to prescribe T3 AND recommendation
HOW THE HELL can they get long term
Bulletin 121 Updated - Liothyronine (DROP-List)
Created: Tuesday, 16 February 2016 12:20
The RCP has replaced their statement on the diagnosis and management of primary hypothyroidism with the 2015 ‘Management of primary hypothyroidism: statement by the British Thyroid Association Executive Committee’. We have therefore made some changes to the bulletin so that it is in line with the BTA recommendations.
The British Thyroid Foundation has also produced a set of Questions and Answers relating to the statement. This is a useful set of questions and could help prescribers explain to patients why the L-T3 or L-T4/L-T3 combination is not recommended, we have added a link to in the bulletin.
