After years of not being able to tolerate thyroxine and becoming bedbound I was slowly getting my life back. I bought and self treated for eighteen months. I had planned to ask my Endo to prescribe at my last appointment but to my surprise I didn't have to ask. He asked me where I was getting it from and when I told him he said ' no need to buy it- we can get your GP to prescribe it' so he sent a letter. I thought there would be a fuss made due to the cost as I am on 20 mcg twice a day. I was pleasantly surprised to get my prescription. That was a month ago and I have just gone to get my new one and the GP said that they won't be prescribing it due to it not being on their list (?) is it unlicensed? I know it is in the BNF. This particular practise prescribed it for me back in 2009/10 when I moved from Somerset. I had it on Dr Skinners recommendation. The reason I came off before is I felt I was going hyper. I tried thyroxine after and could not tolerate it. My GP is aware of all this as she has written intolerant to thyroxine on my notes. They have basically left me I medicated for the last few years hence why I self medicated.
Obviously this is down to cost but I have my consultant on side and a letter stating that I need to have it. What can I do now? Email the Endo or fight it with GP. I'm not sure I like my chances but why give me a prescription for one month and then refuse it. Thanks for any thoughts.
