Thyroid medication
Good morning, I have been taking eltroxin for a very long time and it did not work properly for me. Last year Diotroxin was added and I felt like a new person...could not believe it. When I telephoned for the repeat script I was told that Diotroxin will not be available for some time..something about the manufacturer going down. They are talking about the end of April. I am already starting to feel the effects of not taking the Diotroxin and I really do not want to feel so sick as I did for all the years. Can you perhaps suggest something. Please help.
Regards

I wish natural medicine had hormonal stimulators, there are some homeopathic remedies that can assist but you would have to have a homeopath take a special look at your case to select the appropriate remedy. I would recommend that you consult with your doctor to find an alternative thyroid medication.
