Looking for Armour Thyroid? – WE FOUND IT!
February 11, 2010 -- Many Americans suffering from hypothyroidism are beginning to panic as the long-term shortage of Armour Thyroid, Nature-Throid, and Westhroid continues. It seems to be a mystery as to why Forest Laboratories, the company that produces Armour Thyroid, suddenly stopped making their Thyroid product last Fall.  
Forest Laboratories admits that there is a critical back-order of Armour Thyroid and they do not know when new supply will be available. Forest is recommending that patients contact their physician for alternative treatments such as Synthroid. Unfortunately, many patients simply can not handle taking Synthroid and need the natural desiccated thyroid product. This leaves these patients with a significant health concern and major dilemma.
Dr. Iverson's Comment
Over the past several weeks our office has been flooded with calls on what to do about the shortage in Armour. Don’t ask me why a company that has very little competition and serves hundreds of thousands of people have cut back their production. Rumors are flying around about associations with Big Pharma.
Needless to say, after having so many patients ask for assistance I decided to sit down and do some research. I researched and found several sources of natural thyroid for my patients so they will not have to switch to the chemical drug Synthroid.
One option is to have a compounding pharmacy make up your own dose in the form of USP thyroid capsules. They can compound the exact milligram that is needed although they do tend to be more expensive than Armour.
The other option is to get it directly from our clinic TRILIUM HEALTH. Yes, it is true; I have found a source of natural thyroid. I have ordered natural desiccated thyroid for my patients that is not Armour brand, but it is the equivalent. If you have been taking Armour please contact our office and we can renew your medication with the natural thyroid equivalent today.
Don’t panic, give us a call.
