Another set of questions on NDT as you are all so knowledgeable and really helpful and I remain confused

I am getting a bit confused by the system of obtaining NDT privately in the UK as neither the endocrinologist or my GP have ever taken my symptoms seriously: same old blather that we all hear way to frequently. Complicated further by a CFS diagnosis that seems to be code for 'do nothing and don't listen to a word she says'. I paid to see a private FM doctor and the suggestion was that Levo 100 mg was doing nothing after taking for 5 years - I have been telling everyone that will pretend to listen that this is the case.

So I understand that I need a private prescription and that there are various preparations obtainable from a number of pharmacies and websites but how do I know where to start? My private doctor said that she will not prescribe as worried about being struck off, so from whom do I get the prescription? How much are such services? And how much should I expect to pay for the NDT? I have read up a bit on here but please private message me or point me in the direction of more information please. Thanks in advance.
