Pharmacy NDT

Hi I am from Denmark, and would like to know if anyone could advice a pharmacy, where you could pick up NDT if you have a prescription? I ususally get Erfa from Germany, but they are completely out of stock and new deliveries. Maybe it is the same in the U.K.? I am willing to take other brands, but my prescription is for Erfa. A family member of mine is in the London area about once a month.

Thanks a lot for any suggestions.

Majke,

In the UK if the prescription is for Erfa that is all that you will be dispensed. There are links to UK online pharmacies in the link below:

Majke,

Is their a relative or friend in the UK who the Erfa could be shipped too?

If not, try Googling "Canadian online pharmacies" as they will probably accept your prescription.

Majke,

Are you aware that there is (or was) a pharmacy in Denmark that produces desiccated thyroid? Mentioned here but don't know if it is identified by name:

ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articl...

Also there is an irony that you have a company that produces desiccated thyroid powder. But no idea where it is used - unless shipped to Spain to make Erfa! :-)

Yes i knew that (Glostrup Apotek) but it was better pricing on Erfa Thyroid in Germany when I started :-) (There are 2 pharmacies in Germany that produces NDT also) But I didn´t read this article/research and it´s very interesting because several of the doctors participating are very anti NDT :-/

Hi,

Nice to "meet" a fellow Scandinavian here:-) There are pharmacies in Belgium that sell Erfa and, as far as I know, they ship to the whole EU. PM me if you want details!

Hi Majke -

my pharmacy here in Berlin is always very helpful, they will look into it if I can tell them exactly what it says on your prescription (private, I assume?).

Also, the international pharmacy at the airport is a good resource.

Let me know if you want me to check with one or both!
