Just been summoned to see my GP and feared the worst, as am never normally summoned. She explained to me that someone at the practice had been to a CCG meeting and Liothyronine was on the list to stop GP's prescribing. I have been T3 only for 4 years and tried T4/T3 but not so good on that combo, so stayed T3 only. I am stable and the blood tests fine (ie TSH suppressed of course, and FT3 in range).
I knew about this issue from reading here, but was not sure how many CCGs it was now affecting in the UK. I am in Penzance. Is it worth writing to anyone? I will probably do it anyway as I am upset, and it's the ONLY medication I take!
The only slim chance is that she will write to the endo who originally prescribed it to see if he will prescribe it instead, but I bet he's deluged and won't as it will just be the CCG passing the financial buck.
So now I will need to buy it, or NDT (never tried that). I would be grateful for anyone to contact me with details of the best supplier for T3. Would NDT cost about the same? (ie is there any mileage in me trying that instead for now?).
