I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and autoimmune thyroiditis in 2016 following the symptoms of extreme tiredness, dizziness, menorrhagia (needed a procedure to sort this out), weight gain, dry eyes and extreme hair loss. At the time of diagnosis my TSH was 5.7 and I was diagnosed in Russia. Since then I have been taking Levothyroxine, 50mg, then 100mg (current dose). I usually bring a supply of tablets from my Russia as they are cheaper there.
Reading some posts here, I found out that hypothyroid patients are entitled to free prescriptions for life! My GP never mentioned it to me and I pay for all prescriptions which I need.
Is it true that prescriptions are free for hypothyroid patients? How can I go about getting a free prescriptions certificate in this case if my GP never mentioned it?
