I'm getting bogged down in paperwork concerning T3, but before my next endo appointment, I'm need to establish clearly that NHS doctors are allowed to prescribe drugs that are not listed in the NHS formulary. For example, could they choose to prescribe Sandoz liothyronine? I believe that a post was written maybe 7 or 8 months ago by someone who gets this in Edinburgh.
Now that I know that it's not up to the CCG to decide what a doctor can or cannot prescribe, I'm going to have another push to get T3 on the NHS. It would be helpful if there is an official document that explains what doctors can do (without bowing to their local CCG).
So far both my endo and my GP have simply said that they are not allowed to do this, even though I explained about the Edinburgh example, and I gave them written instructions about how to do it. I'm starting to loose the will to live - and have the biggest pile of research papers so far to take to my endo, but nothing seems to help!!!
