This will make you laugh, it did me.......Last July I was told in no certain terms that I would be "weaned" of the controversial Lithyronine T3 medication as it "does not work" and is expensive in the UK. The idea was that my dose would be reduced to 10 mcg instead of 20 mcg per day. I said a big fat no, I will not stop taking it, even if I have to buy it.
Well, my prescription was never changed and I continued to take it on the "normal" dose. To cut a long story short, I have just had my medication review and was asked "Do you still take the 10 mcg of Lithyronine as prescribed daily"? No, I said I continue to take 20 mcg as originally prescribed and will continue to do so. If you look at my results, you will see, I am on the right dose for the range I am in and I feel good on it, with no side effects".
I was thinking, I was going to get a lot of flack and rubbish about the expense, blah blah blah but I didn't. All I got was "Ok, I will change your notes and prescription to reflect that!" So as far as anyone is concerned at my surgery for the foreseeable future, I am will remain on the same dose as before. It will be interesting to see what the next prescription says about taking it and how much!
Hang in there folks, there is hope for us all. (fingers crossed she says)
