Hypothyroidism Compounding

Thyroid USPThyroid USP is a compounded product that has recently been introduced into the market in order to replace previous medicines like Armour Thyroid. Recently, hypothyroidism sufferers who had been using Armour Thyroid have found themselves out of luck, due to Armour Thyroid being placed on indefinite backorder. With the absence of this popular medication, hypothyroidism patients turned to alternative desiccated thyroid medicines such as WesThroid and Nature-Throid. However, these too are now extremely difficult to find due to scarcity and supply issues, creating a specific need for a new thyroid medication, Thyroid USP.

Thyroid USP contains extremely similar ratios of T3 (liothyronine) and T4 (levothyroxine) as Armour Thyroid, making it a very similar medication in design and purpose. Compound pharmacists are able to obtain desiccated thyroid hormone concentrate, which is almost identical to the main components of Armour Thyroid, WesThroid, and Nature-Throid, which are all commercially available. Through a very meticulous process, the compounding pharmaceutical professionals at Bolingbrook Compounding Pharmacy use this raw pork thyroid powder to compound Thyroid USP, and create dosage sizes individually tailored to the patient. This is a distinct advantage of compounded Thyroid USP over other traditional alternatives.

In terms of ingredient ratios and treatment purposes, Thyroid USP is the closest alternative to Armour Thyroid available in today’s market. The experienced professionals of Bolingbrook Compounding Pharmacy can compound dosages specific for your individual needs, and tailor the medication to personally fit your patient requirements. For additional information regarding Thyroid USP or any other products available through Bolingbrook Compounding Pharmacy’s compounding program, please contact us today and we will be happy to serve you!
