Gp kindly trying to prescribe NDT

I have no thyroid so am on life long replacement .

My very kind gp who realises I'm so much better on NDT has been trying to help prescribe for me .

She gave me a prescription for nature throid which went off to Boots .

After about four weeks of not hearing anything I thought I'd chase it up . The pharmacist told me that it had been sent back with a note saying they're unable to fulfil it . No other details though so am none the wiser . Obviously I'll go back and discuss with my gp but wondered if anyone had a similar experience and was able to solve it ? Thanks

Have you looked at Thyroid UK's website where they list pharmacies that supply various thyroid medicine?

SeasideSusie,

Seems particulary mad now that Boots are part of Walgreens Boots Alliance. And Walgreens do handle Armour Thyroid:

walgreens.com/pharmacy/mark...

Obviously of absolutely no help to the original poster, AmandaQ. :-(
