This is a hormone you can't be without. If your body doesn't make it you have to take pills. They are important. Don't let this happen once you get back on it. You can't just not take it, like you could stop something else. Your body needs this med to survive. Get back on the med asap.
The others gave good information. Running out of this med ought not happen. Call the doctor to renew the prescription. If you need to see him, they still cannot deny the prescription as this is a hormone to keep your body going.
Walgreens has a special savers group which will greatly reduce the cost of your medication. They also mail so you won't run out. Costco, Target, Walmart, And so forth have reduced prices and can help you. Call around to get the best price. All of these will mail if getting out is an issue. Check online and make some calls.
A few days is ok, but more than that you will start having symptoms. The problem is that you will take a few weeks to get back up. That is a very uncomfortable time.
