Good Morning everyone, Ihave been on levo alternating between 75/100mg doses on a daily basis. I have recently managed to see an endo through works private healthcare as some symptoms still lingering eg lack of energy and joint aches and pains. which started when I went on levo. He sent me for the cortisol test which came back not showing any problems.Today I saw him (was surprised that he works Sundays!) and he suggested a trial of T3 for 3 months of 5mg daily to be added to alternate doses of 75/100 of levo. He didn't give me my recent bloods , said he would post to me so I cant add them to my note here today. My question is this is a private prescription he has given me - does anyone know how much a 3 month supply of T3 will cost me ? If its going to be extortionate would it be reasonable for me to just order of one off the suppliers that other users have kindly shared with me. Not sure what brand of T3 is available in the UK. If anyone could advise what brand I should order if I do go via online supplier I would appreciate it. I am on Wockhardt levo as it was the one that suited me best, had problems with Actavis . Is it reasonable for me to order online if the private prescription is too expensive? He said it was best to buy privately for the trial and if the trial works we then have some evidence to convince the NHS. Any advice appreciated. Regards moira
