Reply is in response to 2 letters from me regarding the GP Practice not prescribing despite endo recommending, along with other complaints.
"It is true that we are encouraged not to prescribe Liothyronine because of its cost and dubious efficay but we do have a small number of patients in the Practice for whom this is prescribed having been initiated by a consultant. Indeed, the recommendation is that any prescription for this drug should be initiated by your consultant and shown to be effective before we are asked to prescribe it in Primary Care. The "mix up" to which I referred, therefore, was that your consultant should have initiated the treatment, monitored your condition and only asked us to prescribe it for you when he was satisfied it was working."
What comes first the chicken or the egg?!!
My endo knows I am self medicating and is seeing e the end of April to see how I am doing, not sure whther to reply to the Practice, take it further or wait to see what endo says, assuming if he is happy, the surgery will prescribe?
Please let me have your thoughts.
