Tirosint availablility

Hi there, I ordered Tirosint from the USA a while back and it worked wonders. Due to the expense, I couldn't keep it up. I've now been off meds for a year as I couldn't handle the side effects of meds and I'm in the normal range so endo doesn't want to know, but I know I'm really not well at all. Does anyone know of a supplier in Europe? If you could PM me that would be great.

Thank you.

Hello,

Sorry to hear about your problems. Tirosint is produced by Institut Biochimique SA CH-6903 Lugano Switzerland

They replied quick to email.

The USA branch seems to have a out-sourced reply service that does not know much about the product.

All the best!

JAGL,

UK members often want to know how to obtain Tirosint. It's not on our standard UK prescribing list, so not obtainable on prescription through our doctors.

Here in the UK we are able to import our own medications if we wish too.

Do you know whether Swiss law allows exportation of medicines from Swiss pharmacies to individuals outside of Switzerland (i.e. to the UK)?

I suspect that if it increases sales it should not be a problem. Try to contact the company directly. Here is the email of the person I was in contact with to get a full list of the fillers / excipients. On my side I would love to be able to take NDT but it has been illegal here for years (probably bc it does not pay for the chemical companies to produce it... Excuse my cynical attitude.)

I hope this information helps.
