Hello there! My name is Robert and to be perfectly honest I don't know much about chemistry. In fact, I only took one semester of it in college I am an engineer myself but I digress. I am trying to figure out a problem I have. I want to learn how to make my own medication. When I was young I had my thyroid removed and now I depend on a medication called levothroxine to stay alive. To keep this short: I want to learn how to make this medication myself, and I was hoping someone here might be able to help me get started. Either by informing me of what literature I would need to read or perhaps pointing me in the right direction in terms of who to talk to.
In my fanciful imagination there exists a world where I keep components: x, y and z required to make levothyroxine in bulk in storage and can simply whip up a batch whenever I need one. Am I crazy or is this idea not so insane as it sounds?
