I received Accord in replacement of Actavis and I know they are supposed to be the same but rebranded as Actavis is no longer being made, but I feel under medicated (bloods tomorrow) and it gives me a splitting headache. This is the same headache Teva gave me.
I have filled in a yellow card.
I need to get my surgery to put a note saying: Actavis only. If no Avtavis then Glenmark. NO Accord. NO Teva.
I haven't had Glenmark before but thought I'd try that if they cant get Actavis as it isn't being produced anymore (or is but under Accord).
I was told GP today but she hasn't called and I now see on NHS app its tomorrow. I constantly have this issue with surgery and should have been more ontop of it but I have just been feeling so crap.
Can I get reception to put the note on or does it have to be GP. Or is there anyone else that can put it on? It needs to be on there so that Pharmacy can order in something other than Accord. I need them to do this ASAP because I'm struggling to do anything and I have an exam next Wed to help me progress in my career and I cant bloody revise for it.
I did call 111 before and they gave me a number for a pharmacist who said they could get me an emergency prescription and I could go and get some Levo that wasnt accord from a pharmacy that had something else. Now Almus is made by Accors so I disnt want to risk it but now I'm just thinking maybe I should try it? Actavis was made by Accord and that was good... I know itll take a while to kick in r.e. thyroid, and I've got bloods tomorrow that I think will show they need to up it again, which will be interesting if I swap brands and its stronger and I end up needing to come down again but well see...but obviously those wont come back for some time..main thing is getting rid of this headache and when I stopped taking Teva and cut an Actavis 50mcg in half to get the extra 25mcg my headaches stopped that same day. And although I'd be revising in bed and dragging my tired ass into work at least I'd be able to think without a knife cutting into my brain...
