Buying T3 online

Hi, I'm new here

Could anyone let me know where to buy liothyronine online please. I've been prescribed it for 10 years without a problem until last year when my GP looked at blood results and said I had to cut down to one 20 mcg a day instead of two. I stupidly did this and within a few months put on three stone and spiralled down into a pit of misery with constant headache, foggy brain, blurred vision and spent 16 hours a day in bed but with pains in my legs which stopped me from sleeping. I think the reason I do well on T3 only is that my first test result, before I was put on medication, showed a high enough T4 but low T3 reading, so there's probably a conversion problem. I've now returned to two tablets a day but finding it hard to get back to my former self. Until recently I had no knowledge of sites like this one so didn't know about the struggle thyroid sufferers have to get proper treatment. I'm now in a constant state of stress waiting for my GP to tell me he can no longer prescribe liothyronine so your help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have been getting t3 on NHS keep fighting for it.  I have spent 12 months in a state of stress too and been given the run around but think I have got somewhere with my new consultant saying saying I can mkeep my t3 she also said docs not allowed to prescribe unless your under a consultant.  Stand your ground !! Of course if no luck buy elsewhere. X

Thanks polly3, that's what I intend to do. I do fear for the future though. My worst fear would be that an EU law is passed to stop people buying thyroid medicine from abroad but perhaps I'm just being a pessimist!


I's tough but never give up and instead hope that they become aware that t3 helps and will prescribe readily.  Good luck and try not to loose hope. X


I didn't mean to start a tsunami of requests sweetbroccoli but thank you for answering us all!
