What do you think about this?

I have taken thyroid medication since I was a teenager..since age 14.
I have been prescribed all the name brands over
the years.( Synthroid, Armour, and Nature Throid.)

I have most recently been taking Nature Throid, and for about three months. it is now gone. I got it in another state.

I had an appointment with a new doctor today, and he said he wouldn't prescribe any thyroid medication for me, for at least 8 weeks. I had lab work done, and will have it done again in 8 weeks for comparison.

I don't think I should be without thyroid medication for so long. I really need it.

Re: What do you think about this?

Wow, I can't imagine how the dr thinks that's okay. He should have at least given you a prescription for what you had been taking (or something similar if that drug isn't available) that would last you until your labs came back. I've changed drs a few times over the years & they have adjusted my meds after labs, but I've never had to go without.
