I doubt Actavis is available in Turkey. I should think you will be supplied Tiromel Levotiron. I'm sorry I can't reassure you that you'll be okay. The only way to tell is to try it. If it doesn't suit stop taking it and resume Actavis when you get home.

I hope you manage to enjoy your holiday.


Thanks clutter im only here for a week, would i be ok for a week? baring in mind im currently trying to get levels stable?



Your options are to try the Turkish T3 or miss a week's Levothyroxine. Not taking Levothyroxine for a week will reduce your T4 and T3 levels but they will rise when you resume Actavis.
