Hypo for 6 years and lived overseas. Happy on T3 12.5mcg (cytomel) and 100mcg levo. Returned to UK and after a battle with GP prescribed 12.5 msg liothyronine (Perrigo) pending appt with Endo. It doesn't agree with me and spent Christmas feeling like I was going to have a heart attack. Stopped taking it and waited 18 days for an appointment with GP. Told it is the only brand they can prescribe?! Feel like Ive been hit over the head with a baseball bat and falling asleep mid afternoon. Also rapidly gaining weight. Bloods in range but didnt and wont test for T3.
Still waiting for my Endo appointment (6 months so far). I am going to Brussels for a meeting next week. Will I be able to buy T3 OTC. GP wont provide a prescription for an overseas pharmacy.
Grateful for any advice.
