I read on the internet that 97% of GP's give out placebo's at least once a week. I found this quite shocking. Does anyone know if GPs and Endos give out placebo thyroid meds and if so how can we tell if its fake? My T3 comes in a plain tablet bottle and when I collect it from the chemist, it only has the chemist sticker on it, whereas the T4 comes in bliser packs that have the logo all over them. Sometimes, I have been given T3 in a plain tablet bottle. Can placebos come with a brand name all over them.
