I am aware that NHS Scotland - I live in Edinburgh - is separate from NHS England but I have been seeing an endocrinologist who was willing to put me on T3 after I could demonstrate that Idid not do well on T4 alone, and I was given T3, by Mercury. I am at present on 25mcg T4 and 30mcg T3. This may not be the final dose but I am happy as I finally begin to feel better. With my last prescription I went to a different - independent - chemist (Thinking there is only one manufacturer of T3 licenced anyway in UK) but I was delighted to find out he stocked Thybon Henning (Sanofi)and he assured me his supplier assured him there is no problem to have this make. I would have thought if one small chemist can find a UK supplier it must be possible in other places, too. Has the NHS finally realised it doesn't have to pay the extortionate price charged by Mercury? This surely must make a difference for others to be able to continue/start on T3 as I presume the cost for Thybon Henning is as charged on German online pharmacies, about €30 for a packet.
