Compounded Natural Desiccated Thyroid

(And Solutions for Patients Trying to Get Nature-Throid and WP Thyroid)

A compounded medication is a drug that is mixed and prepared as a custom mix, specifically to meet your needs. 

Creating a compounded drug involves mixing various active pharmaceutical ingredients -- known as API -- with excipients. 


API are the active ingredients in medications that perform the desired action. Excipients are the fillers, binders, coatings, dyes, and capsules that help a drug stay together as a pill or tablet, or help contain and deliver the medication to your system. Unlike the API, excipients are not chemically active.

Different manufacturers use different APIs. This is true for natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) drugs. In the case of NDT, the APIs are the natural forms of the thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) thyroid hormones. The excipients used in manufactured NDT depend on the brand's manufacturer's unique formulation.

 

Nature-Throid® and WP Thyroid® use API that's sourced and manufactured by the medications' drugmaker, RLC Labs. The sourcing of the API for Abbvie/Allergen's Armour Thyroid®, and Acella's NP Thyroid® is not publicly known. 


Patients taking the Nature-Throid® and WP Thyroid® brands of NDT have faced difficulties getting their medication in recent months, due to FDA interference and extended FDA recalls that have taken these drugs out of distribution. Many patients who have out of necessity been forced to switch to Armour® or NP Thyroid® have reported a poor response to the substitutions, and difficulty managing their hypothyroidism.

If you're a patient who feels best on Nature-Throid® or WP Thyroid® and you're not functioning well on a substitute, the API used by these other brands may be the problem. 

 

That's why you should be aware that you can get compounded NDT that uses RLC's API, and it's available from a select group of mail order and local compounding pharmacies.

In order to get compounded NDT, you'll need your physician to write a new prescription for compounded NDT at the specified dosage. In most cases, you can discuss ahead of time with the pharmacy which fillers they will use in preparing the compounded NDT capsules for your prescription.  


Here's a list of the compounding pharmacies who we know have expertise at NDT compounding, and can custom-compound NDT using RLC's API.
