Hi could anyone advise, please I have struggled with hypothyroidism for the past two years, without going into a long story ! I started on 25mcg daily without any change from my horrible symptoms the worse being my lovely thick hair was falling out. Severe tiredness, weight gain etc etc I seen my endo who upped my dosage to 50mcg and told me the next time I came which was 4 months if my symptoms had not changed he would look into prescribing T3 medication. Guess what I went to my appointment on the 22/02/17 and was told he could not give me a prescription for T3 due to the cost and was unable to give it to me because he had been told by his bosses he was not allowed to give it to patients any longer. He then told me the patients who had been treated with this drug did well but then said through studies, there is no proof this medication actually works or if there would be any adverse side effects in the future, and then said who knows in the future they may be giving them out like smarties. He then said he thinks I need a further increase in my levothyroxine and to come back in august. He then said he would write to my doctor and ask if he could prescribe this drug, but then said don't hold your hopes up due to cost I would be very surprised if he prescribed this drug for you, just before I left he said if I could I would give you it. I left feeling deflated and totally alone.
I have now been scrolling the internet to see if I could get this drug my self you can in many places abroad but feel nervous incase it's not the real thing can anyone help with a genuine site I can buy this drug myself I just want my life back.
