If you’re here from Pinterest or your favorite search engine, welcome! I originally wrote this post back in 2013 (I think) and yes, if you’re wondering, I’m still taking this product. If you’d like to know where I get it, scroll to the bottom of this post. If you have any questions, be sure to read through the comments, where your question might have already been answered, and keep in mind that I am not a medical professional! I cannot advise you on the proper dosage or anything else pertaining to your thyroid condition.
A few months ago, I ran out of my Levothyroxine prescription. It was time for my six-month thyroid checkup, which meant that my doctor’s office wouldn’t renew the script unless/until I came in for the blood work. Unfortunately, money was super-tight at the time, and as a self-employed freelancer, I don’t have insurance (and not sure if Obamacare’s actually going to be of any help in that regard, but that’s a whole ‘nother post). With having to pay out-of-pocket for both the office visit and the labs, we were looking at having to scrape together a pretty big chunk of change. So I had the bright idea of seeing how long I could go without my thyroid medication.
