Compounded Medication for Thyroid Treatment

 

Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine issue that is due to the inability to produce adequate thyroid levels. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include:

 

  • Fatigue
  • Hypotension
  • Fluid Retention
  • Constipation
  • Headaches
  • Low Sexual Desire
  • Irregular Menstrual Periods
  • Aching Muscles and Joints
  • Depression Anxiety
  • Slowed Metabolism
  • Enlarged Tongue
  • Swollen Neck
  • Weight Gain
  • Hypoglycemia
  • High Cholesterol and Triglycerides

 

There are commercially available forms of Thyroids (T4/T3) are available. Some patient’s symptoms may not be well controlled with the commercial forms and need a specific strength or combination compounded.

 

At CareFirst Specialty Pharmacy we can compound the thyroid preparation to your specific needs. Some of the advantages of compounded thyroid are:

 

  • The use of desiccated porcine thyroid, pure liothyronine (T3) and levothyroxine (T4)
  • Thyroid can be compounded to a specific strength or ratio
  • Sustained-release capsules are available
  • We can compound with hypoallergenic excipients such as cellulose or acidophilus

 

Nature-Throid® vs. Westhroid® vs. CareFirst Specialty Pharmacy®

Several years ago, the formulation of Nature-Throid® and Westhroid® was merged to be completely identical with one another. All aspects of the products, from the raw materials (active Thyroid USP to all inactive ingredients in exact ratios) to manufacturing process, are absolutely identical with the only difference being the tablet imprint code (NT for Nature-Throid® & TH for Westhroid®).

Example of the 1 Grain is outlined below:

    Liothyronine (L-triiodothyronine or L-T3) is indicated for use in the treatment of hypothyroidism. Liothyronine is the synthetic form of triiodothyronine. T3 is one of the two circulating Thyroid Hormones and is the more metabolically active one, relative to T4 also called levothyroxine. It affects almost every physiological process in the body, including growth and development, metabolism, body temperature, and heart rate. We compound liothyronine(T3) capsules or a combination of levothyroxine (T4)/liothyronine (T3) in an immediate release and slow/modified release capsule based on your doctor’s prescription. The dosage of thyroid hormones is determined by the indication and must in every case be individualized according to patient response and laboratory findings. Please contact us for additional strengths. This product and its statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not designed to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
