HELLO. I WRITE IN CAPITALS, SORRY I AM NOT SHOUTING, JUST BAD EYESIGHT.

WELL, YET AGAIN A DRUG COMPANY HAS LET ME DOWN.
THREE YEARS AGO OR SO, MSD STOPPED DISTRIBUTION OF RESTANDOL / TESTOCAPS 40MG
MSD SAY, IT IS A PROBLEM WITH THERE THIRD PARTY MANUFACTURER.
SOME PEOPLE WILL WONDER WHY I AM STILL TAKING RESTANDOL.
THAT'S SIMPLE. THEY SUIT ME AND MY BODY BETTER THAN TESTOGEL OR TOSTRAN GEL.
THE GELS BURN MY SKIN AND CAUSE ITCHING AND ECZEMA, THEY ALSO CAUSE ME PHYSCOLOGICAL PROBLEMS,THAT GET PROGRESSIVELY WORSE THE LONGER I USE THEM.
LAST TIME, I WAS WORRIED I WOULD BE ADMITTED TO A MENTAL HOSPTIAL.
NOW, MSD AND STOPPED THE DISTRIBUTION OF RESTANDOL. SO TODAY I HAVE CALLED 30 PHARMACIES IN LEICESTER WHERE I LIVE, TO SEE IF ANY HAD A SUPPLY OR STASH OF RESTANDOL. THEY DID NOT.
SO I HAVE ABOUT 12 DAYS SUPPLY LEFT.
SO I HAVE TO SEE THE CONSULTANT IN MID MAY ABOUT ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE.
TO BE HONEST, I AM FED UP OF BEING HELD TO RANSOM BY THESE DRUG MANUFACTURERS. THEY ARE FACELESS. UNCARING AND UNHELPFUL TOO. THEY REALLY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE PATIENTS THAT HAVE BEEN LEFT HIGH AND DRY BY THEM.
THEY DO NOT APPRECIATE THE TIME IT TAKES TO REARRANGE A MEDICAL REGIME.
SOME HAVE NEVER HEARD OF PITUITARY CONDITIONS, LET ALONE WHERE OR WHAT THE PITUITARY GLAND IS.
I WOULD LIKE SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, TO TAKE UP THE CAUSE AND TRY AND GET THESE FACELESS BODIES TO REALISE THE DEVASTATION THEY CAUSE. THEN, TO PUT IT RIGHT SO IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.
I AM NOT CROSS OR ANGRY ABOUT THIS. I AM JUST TIRED AND WORN OUT.
I ALSO SPOKE TO NHS ENGLAND AND CARE QUALITY......THE RESPONSE FROM THE PERSON I SPOKE TO WAS AWE INSPIRING.
"HYPO WHAT....IS IT LIKE DIABETES!"
I THINK THAT SAYS IT ALL.
