I've been lurking on this site for a while now, taking in all the incredibly useful insights and information from everyone. So much useful experience - thank you all. I've now got a question of my own, which is about accessing T3 at a reasonable price.
I would be extremely grateful for any recommendations for reputable online suppliers of T3 5mcg tablets - please PM if possible.
I was diagnosed with Hashimotos about 3 years ago via an NHS GP but wasn't doing well on T4 alone, so decided to start seeing an endo privately in London. It has taken a while (like, 18 months+) to find a good balance of treatment as it turns out I don't convert T4 properly, but I'm now feeling somewhat better on 100 mcg levothyroxine and 5mcg liothyronine per day together with vit D supplementation and a gluten-free regime.
Up to now I've been buying Mercury Pharma liothyronine with a private prescription from an online pharmacy in the UK at huge expense. My endo told me that it would be possible for me use my private prescription at a European pharmacy for a much more reasonable cost (at least as long as we remain in the EU ...) and I know it's also possible to buy liothyronine OTC in other countries. However, I'd feel much more confident with a recommendation from people who have done this before, so would be very grateful for any suggestions or pointers.
Meanwhile, I would be very happy to PM anyone interested with the name of my endo, as I have found him to be extremely sympathetic, explains things well and is willing to explore options with me rather than just pontificate. Downside is that he does not have an NHS clinic.
