Anyone else taking natural thyroid and affected by the recall of Nature-throid? I got a letter from CVS Caremark saying they couldn’t fill. They were no help for alternatives but I did find another drug through a compound pharmacy. Not much more expensive either because it is not custom compounded. And they were fast! Contact me if you need the pharmacy.

Yes... I'm taking Armour again.

I hope the NP comes back soon.

Does anyone know why Natur-throid was recalled?

I used to use it, then had to switch to NP Thyroid, etc. But I saw a while ago (within the last 10 months or a year?) on StopTheThyroidMadness.com that there were problems with Natur-thorid, NP Thyroid, etc.

At that point (and now), people are finding that Armour Thyroid, or compounded dessicated thryoid, is best. However, Armour is not as easy to dissolve or as good tasting as it used to be.

All, or almost all, of the dessicated thyroid has been coming from China. There are huge two problems with that: There is next to no oversight in a country that has a history of many violations.

Also, there has been a Swine Flu going around in China for years, and they are not past using sick pigs for medicine. It's tragic that the US gets almost all raw ingredients for meds from China, then they're made in India. Or everything from India.

With next to no oversight in either country and tons of violations, but the US still allows them to sell to us. Unreal.

I heard on my thyroid site on FB that Nature-Throid recalled it themselves when they found that it contained "too much" T3.

Well, let me tell you that I have never felt so good while on it this summer!! I compared my last two thyroid tests (one in June and one in October) and my T3 was indeed higher!

I'm letting my doctor know about this and hopefully, he can add T3 if it drops back down again.

I really and truly have had SO much more energy.

I hope they will be back with the Nature-Throid soon.
