T3 availability

Hi am a new person and have tried to find a source to obtain T3 outside of the uk. I had private prescription which cost me £1200 for low dose for 6 months. My specialist says after 10yrs on t3, 4 years on t3and t4 that I must now change to t4 only or fund it myself. Been redlined and no evidence it is better than t4.

I was so well this year until we Devine started with the withdrawal of my t3.

At the moment I am now on T4 75mg T3 5mg twice a day but due to increase to 100mg t4 and just one t3 with aim in 6 weeks to get me off all t3. I can be monitored on both if I can purchase t3 myself. My reading are t3. 4.6, t4. Serum free 15.2, and tsh 0.23.

When I felt my very best ever this year my specialist said I was at risk and needed to change my medication

My readings then were tsh 0.08, t4 10.6, and t3 5.1.

I don't understand when I was best I have been for 14 yrs they insisted I had to change .

I would appreciate any advise /info that could help me either source t3 /or explain any of the above. Tks

  • As you have a private prescription, if it's for 20mcg, you can obtain Thybon Henning from Germany. There is a link in Clutter's reply in this thread, 7th reply down


  • Thank you for this info. Do you actually use it or have feed back on it from someone who does?

  • No, because I don't have a prescription, I self source non prescription T3, but you could put up a new thread asking for people's experience.

  • I will do. Thank you following up on the info I have got today so fingers crossed.
