All the pennies fell into place when I watched TV One Close Up and discovered that numeros other people around NZ were expeiencing simlar symptoms to me and the cause was our reformulated GlaxoKlineSmith eltroxin medication. I have been experiencing persistant severe headaches, chronic fatigue, loss of libido, depression, foot and leg cramps, blurred vision, itchy irritated eyes, unexplained weight gain. I was forced to give up daily swim of aprox 1km, weekly scuba diving as my vision was too impaired and I did not have strength or energy under the water (I live at a beach) and walking of 1 -2 hours. I went from high energy,, bubbly women to exhausted
wreck barely able to find enough strength or energy to do basic housework.

The saddest part is that no one warned us of these possible side effects due to the reformulated eltroxin tablets and we are forced to continue taking these toxic Government funded tablets because they are the only approved brand.

To date Medsafe have received over 500 complaints. National Radio reported this morning that Pharmac has tested the reformulated tablets and found nothing wrong. It was reported that they will not be changing
their supplier. We have no choice but to continue with our side effects or
get our pharmacist to source another brand such as Goldshield which will cost me $1200 per year as my thyroid has been removed and I require 150 mg/daily.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
