Hi all. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism as a young(ish) man more years ago than I can recall and have been on 150mg Levothyroxine for ages. No problems with the treatment nor the dosage, but the prescription process is a bit of a pain and so I am interested in any feedback available from this forum. I generally get only 3 months of levothyroxine at a time on prescription (currently down to one month while waiting for the results of my annual check up), and this is proving to be somewhat of an inconvenience. In the past I am sure I was able to obtain a large pot of the little white pills to last me a year or so, but now no longer. Since I am having to take the medication for life and since my review is yearly, it would make sense that I could get a year's supply (I'm quite happy to pay a prescription charge for the privilege). I have asked my GP on more than one occasion, but 3 months it remains. Any advice or comments would be of great interest.
