I had an interesting meeting with my Endocrinologist yesterday (NHS South London). At the moment he advised a combination of T4 and T3 which is prescribed via my GP. We talked about my moving to Scotland where (to my understanding) NHS are not prescribing T3. I explained that I would prefer not to buy from the internet in part because I didn't think that I should. We talked about private prescriptions... He suggested that this would be a reasonable way forward to get a private prescription and to buy online or abroad (Greece or Belgium was suggested). We talked about going overseas to buy it in person.I explained that I did think it odd advice to give a woman of 57 - the idea of going on 'drug holidays'. I suggested that this wouldn't be the case if the patients were mainly men rather than women. I know that I have been lucky to have been seen by this particular endocrinologist over the years - he has been supportive and I do feel as if I have been listened to. However, I also think its so sad that it has come to this - sourcing drugs and to some extent possibly putting myself at risk. We did sell our house and we will be moving to Scotland in August. We will be visiting both Spain, Greece and France in the next couple of months - so will let you know how my shopping goes. Many thanks to everyone that has offered advice and support and apologies for long message.
