Hello everyone, just joined mainly because I am a little confused!
I have had underactive thyroid for over 35 yrs now and for approx 25 of those yrs had been pretty ok thanks to taking Eltroxin as opposed to the generic form of thyroxin.
Several years ago now Eltroxin was taken off the market having had the patent bought up by Mercury Pharma and discontinued. I was sadly put back onto generic Thyroxin and have consequently reverted back to a large, exhausted, foggy brained old lady who wants to sleep half the day away etc. literally back to square one of 35 yrs ago.
Looking through pages of info trying to get a handle on what I can do now in later life as I am getting worse by the day, I have come across pages that seem to infer that one can be prescribed Eltroxin tablets again. Anyone know if this is true? Don't want to get my hopes up too much! My Doc is on holiday so can't ask her the question!
