Compounded Medications for Hypothyroid & Adrenal Fatigue

Many patients suffering from symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue and thyroid imbalance may not achieve satisfactory results from individual, commercial medication, for a variety of reasons including dosage strength and form and pharmacodynamic variability. While some patients have success with synthetic thyroid hormones such as levothyroxine and liothyronine, others have found that Natural Thyroid is the only treatment that delivers satisfactory results.

How can compounds help?

A compounded thyroid medication can offer treatment strengths that are not commercially available, minimize dosage variability and eliminate ingredients that may cause adverse reactions in patients. We can eliminate filler ingredients, and provide certain forms and strengths of Natural Thyroid. These doses can be prepared in specific amounts of T4 and T3 and may also be created in a sustained-release formulation.

For these reason, many doctors are prescribing compounded medications to help patients improve their hormone levels and find relief from hypothyroid and adrenal fatigue symptoms.
