Hi. I am new here and not sure how to properly ask this question. I have seen others post similar questions which appear to be answered through private message. Therefore, I decided to post a new message might be best.
I am in the U.S., but need to obtain Erfa Thyroid without a prescription. I have gone the traditional route through an endocrinologist for years. (I was diagnosed in 2003 and went to Era about two years ago). I had been prescribed 125 mcg of levothyroxine and was 'stable' on that dose for may years. However, I had continually felt lousy despite having 'normal' blood work.
I began doing research and came upon many websites discussing the fallacy of the traditional approach to thyroid management. People seem to fully support the approach of using a natural, dessicated thyroid, particularly those that have a specific formulation and contain exact amounts of the included thyroid hormones. I then made the switch and obtained Erfa Thyroid myself about three years ago and I have felt better than I have in many years.
However, the source I had found has changed their procedure and I cannot obtain the Erfa without a prescription. I have lousy insurance with few choices for doctors, and I cannot find one willing to even consider prescribing Erfa Thyroid. They all insist on the traditional, and useless, route of prescribing Synthroid, Levothyroxine, etc.
Can someone please direct me to a reliable, safe source for Erfa that I can obtain online? Thank you very much for any help and support you can provide.
