Back in 1996 my girlfriend was married to a doctor for whom she work for and after dosage adjustments and reacting to the symptoms and not the lab work, they came to the conclusion that she suffered from Hypothyroidism. The really strange part from what I am been learning is the amount she needs to take everyday in order to stop the symptoms. The amount she has been taking successfully for the past several years has been 4000mcg daily = .200 of Levoxyl X20. Back in April this now divorced doctor pasted away and the doctor she was seeing to get the prescription filled suddenly decided she wasn't 'comfortable' prescribing that dose. Since then life has been a living hell in trying to find anyone who will not treat her , or us, like we are crazy.
We contacting this Dr. Lowe in CO. who wants her to go out there to study her because of how strange this case is, but wants to charge her top dollar for a week long stay (or so it seems.) I have FRANTICALLY been searching the net trying to find an OTC solution she can take so she can at least 'get by' until we figure out what our next move it. I have also received an email from a Dr. Weiss in Chicago I contacted who said he could get her in to see her in 2 weeks. The problem is we are out of meds RIGHT NOW! If there is any advise, suggestions, or anyone we could see in the greater St. Louis area...or anywhere else for that matter...who will treat her properly, please, PLEASE contact us.
I can be [ removed ] Any help ASAP would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you.
