Thyroid medication
Good morning doc. I have had thyroid problems for as long as I can remember and it has always been a struggle to get the medication working properly so that I feel well. At times I was taking up to 5-6 Eltroxin tablets and still feeling rotten. Beginning of last year a Dr. added Diotroxin and after a while I could not believe that I felt so good. 2 Weeks ago I telephoned for a repeat script of the diotroxin, as I do monthly, and was told it is out of stock and will only be available end of April...
maybe! What do I do now. I have really been on all the others and nothing worked except this combination I was taking.
Please help as I can already feel myself going down again.

Hypo, this is a big problem for all of us. Diotroxin® is a combination of Eltroxin® and Tertroxin®. Both Diotroxin® and Tertroxin® are unavailable at the moment, so all we can do is offer Eltroxin® and wait. Both Diotroxin® and Tertroxin® are made by Aspen Pharmacare, so maybe you and all the other patients who are suffering should contact them... Good luck.
