TIROSINT or similar - Gluten/lactose/corn Free

Hello all,

I’m a kiwi living in Dubai with Hashimotos. All the Levothyroxine medication brands here in Dubai contain Lactose and Corn, both I’m allergic too. My husband travels for work and I’m hoping to find out which countries sell Tirosint (or something similar) which you can buy over the counter?

Thank you for any help

This document - very incomplete and not well checked - might be of help to you:

It is not always branded as Tirosint!

The issue I have very little information about is the need for a prescription.

i was able to get tirosint in Italy without a prescription (well, one chemist did ask, but none of the others did, and there's hundreds of chemists! Virtually in every corner in Rome!)
