Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I have Hashimoto’s and still have not found an optimum medication. Both my GP and endo insist on Synthroid alone. When I ask about Cytomel they both evade the question. I can’t force them to write the script and I don’t want to change doc’s right now because I will be moving in the near future.

I have found several sites that offer Cytomel without a prescription. I have never sought to change a doctors treatment but I am fed up with this ‘one size fits all’ protocol. Is there a downside to ordering these meds off the internet? Is there something I should know about taking Cytomel? I thought I would try the lowest dosage and if problems arise discontinue it use.

Any comments are appreciated?
Thanks, Don.
