Hi I was diagnosed hypothyroid about 8 years ago with a multinodular goitre. 4 years ago I noticed I was having trouble swallowing and felt the nodules in my goitre were getting bigger so I pushed my GP into sending me for an ultrasound. Fast forward 5 months I had a total thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer. I have was discharged from hospital taking Lionine which my GP soon stopped as it was too expensive and I was changed to levothyroxine. I have never felt well since changing and feel completely drained. I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue, osteoarthritis, hypertension since. I also have cervical spine stenosis, anyklosing spondylitis, degenerative spine disease and depression. I have discussed changing to Lionine with my endocrinologist but he poo pooed the thought of putting me on a T3 medication as well as T4 as a ridiculous idea and unfounded. After reasing Stop the hypothyroid madness I feel I need to be using a dessicated thyroxine and wonder if I can get it on prescription or if I would need to buy it myself. Does anyone have any experience of this medication, and how to get it?
