Doesn't it just make you spitting mad when chemists change the brand of thyroxine you are on and then try to argue that they work just as well as the ones you normally take.
I got my repeat prescription today and when I checked they had changed the brand. I wouldn't have minded so much but my repeat prescription actually tells them the brand I need.
I rang and spoke to a very nice gentleman who just couldn't seem to grasp that my body doesn't absorb these ones properly and makes me feel very ill. I told him it wasn't the active ingredient that caused this it was the other stuff that was in them.
There are 2 ingredients that are totally different and one that isn't there at all. I told him he needed to put this on my repeat records.
He then went into great detail about how they have no control over which brands they get they have to have what they are given. My reply was if you don't have them get them from somewhere else as I don't like being made ill by medication ass I have enough of that with othjer stuff I have to take.
Why oh why do these people think they know our bodies better thatn we do ourselves when they don't.
I should add I have had my thyroid condition for over 40 years so I know how it effects me only too well.
There, moan over thanks for listening
