TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recently, there has been a worldwide deficiency in Thyroid USP causing many chemical suppliers to desperately find a replacement source for thyroid disorder sufferers. Over 7 years ago, Armour Thyroid, the largest supplier of Thyroid USP in the country, changed the fillers in their product. Almost immediately, many people began to complain about the side effects and sensitivities they were experiencing. Within months, the company had to discontinue this new formula, but it took over two years before the original formulation of this product was available again. It was during this time that many patients switched to Thyroid USP compounded. One supplier began dispatching a Thyroid USP from China only to have it recalled by the FDA due to product contamination. For many years now, Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy has been able to get the Thyroid USP from a very reliable source until last year when it became extremely rare and then quickly became impossible to find.
Carrollwood Compounding Center set out to find a solution and is now successfully providing another source to their patients in the Tampa Bay Area without contamination or adverse side effects. First, Carrollwood Compounding Center makes sure they only use the highest quality ingredients on the market. They purchase their chemicals from only two trusted, reliable chemical wholesalers. The reason Carrollwood Compounding Center only works with these two companies is because these wholesalers never distribute a product until it goes through rigorous analysis testing to determine the purity and potency of the chemicals. After 32 years in business, Carrollwood Compounding Pharmacy is proud to say they have never had to recall a product and plan to keep it that way by not sourcing through cheaper, lower quality distributors.
Carrollwood Compounding Center also only uses an inert filler, PH-105 Avicel, and they have never experienced a negative reaction. Some patients have switched to a combination of both T3 and T4 synthetic to find a harmonious balance for their thyroid. Since Thyroid USP is a natural product, it is derived from pig thyroid and is desiccated. Carrollwood Compounding Center uses the alternative combination of T3-liothyronine and T4-levothyroxine as a synthetic drug replacement. They also formulated it with a sustained release by adding an inert ingredient called Methylcellulose. Although this medication is not natural, it mimics the T3 and T4 hormones exactly as your body would make it.
“There are a couple of good options now to replace the Thyroid USP deficiency” says Dan Fucarino, owner and lead pharmacist of Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy. “One option would be to try using the commercial thyroid prescriptions now available like Armour Thyroid, NatureThroid, NP Thyroid and WP Thyroid. I would say these are good options because all these companies are aware of the history of Armour Thyroid and have made their product as inert and hypoallergenic as possible. Most patients are still hesitant to try them again because they are afraid they will have the same reaction as they did before which is why our pharmacy formulated and offers a unique option.”
Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy is located in Tampa, Florida. They feature a State-of-the-Art compounding center with complete sterile facilities. They specialize in prescriptions, female and male hormone replacement therapy, and veterinary compounding. Carrollwood Pharmacy is a family owned, independent pharmacy that has been in business since 1965.
