dr wont prescribe natural thyroid please help

I have been on Synthroid for over a year now and I still feel sick.It took forever to get my Dr to admit I was hypo because my blood test were with in normal. Finally I told them a small lie to get a ultra sound on my neck and they found Goiter which  made them get me on synthroid. (I told them I was having sharp pains in my neck)I am on public health care so I dont have a choice as to the care they will give me. A second opinion is usually a student Dr. under the Dr. you disagree with. I want to try Armour or the compound the all natural or something because I hate feeling like this. I complain about how tired I still am and they want me to go on antidepressants? I am depressed because I dont have a choice in my health care! I told them for two years my thyroid was out I knew by my own study over the net.  Please how can I get a prescripition for a natural thyroid I cant afford to pay a Dr with no insurance that will want to rerun all those test again I went through with the state Drs just to get a prescription for something I already have a script for. I am on 100mg of Synthroid I take two 50gm a day because I was alergic to the fillers they used in the 100gm pill. I was also alergic to the Levo so I cant take the generic Ive been on Synthroid for a little over a year >Please someone help me because I am 35 and my life plus my childrens is passing me by in a dream cause I sleep all the time and have gained over 50lbs in less than a year I believe from being constipated>I am not depressed! There is so much I want to do that my body just wont let me I am in tears now because I hope so bad I get a responce that can help me.

  • My only suggestions is to contact CanadaDrugs.com their phone # is 1-800-226-3784. I have recommended them to several other people inasmuch as my husband and I are doing SO WELL on their Thyroid medication which is the equivalent of the Armour Thyroid they took off the market. You DO need an RX from the physician but I highly suggest you give it a try.They are NOT expensive, very courteous and everyone I recommended it to as well as my husband and I are doing great. GOOD LUCK! It’s a shame how the pharmaceutical companies in this country only care about money NOT people..Several other people on our blog have tried it and they too are doing good so don;t give up. hope. there is an answer and it may very well be CANADY DRUG!

    Thyroid hormone will then never relieve the symptoms.

    Make sure you have the. Doctor specifically check TSH and free T4. If they are both normal then there is no hypothyroidism. And you answer to your symptoms is not thyroid hormone in any form.

    Good luck and always be honest with your physician. If you disagree then get a second opinion. That is your right.

    Hope you feel better.
