I live as you do in the middle of nowhere between Poitier and Limoges 1 hour each way.
My nearest town is 6 kilometers away and has 1000 inhabitants. This is where I buy my T3.
I have also ordered it from another larger town and picked it up the same afternoon.
Now I just show them the empty box and it's fine they keep it in stock at my local Pharmacy.
The first time I just wrote the name and maker down on paper and they looked it up on their computer before ordering it in.
Only once did they ask for a prescription but I explained that I paid for it in full and no more was said that was back in August.
I get my blood test done privately back in the UK once a year. I never visit the doctor or Endos they were a complete waste of time.
I take 1 NDT and 2 x halves of T3 every day and feel well I self medicate and if I have a problem I just simply post it on here and receive replies.
When the scare i.e. lacking of T3 in the UK started earlier this year I wasn't on T3 I only wanted to see if I could help people in finding a source that was back in May and I have been buying it every four weeks since then.
I only started using it myself 6/7 weeks ago.
