Purchasing T3 online - Advice

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone might be able to message me a good place to purchase t3 online?

My endo had prescribed t3 alongside my levothyroxine as I do not convert properly based on my latest blood results. However, the CCG would not approve the prescription, so despite the fact that my endo thinks I need it, I cannot get it on prescription :(

I'm hoping it might be a little cheaper to buy it online rather than a private prescription as money is quite tight at the moment.

Write complaint to NHS that you are refused medication crucial to your health and life.


See Improve Thyroid Treatment campaign on Facebook for lots of helpful letter templates to write complaint to CCG, your local PALs and your MP

If your NHS endocrinologist recommends a three month trial he should prescribe for first three months on NHS from his hospital. Assuming you do well on it then prescribing is transferred to GP


Clear legal outline

If you really get nowhere with this then you can get private prescription from your endo to enable you to order from Germany at fraction of cost

30 Euro for 100 x 20mcg Liothyronine

PM me for more info if needed

Your Endo can not just say you need it and not provide it either with NHS 3 month trial or a private prescription
