Thyroid Health

Your underactive thyroid may need a boost to keep it in check.

What is Hypothyroidism?

Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland at the back of your neck. Your body makes two types of thyroid hormones, liothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). When your thyroid produces too little or none of these hormones, it may signify a condition known as hypothyroidism.

Why am I tired all of the time?

Despite a long list of symptoms that may be associated with hypothyroidism– like fatigue, dry skin, decreased sex drive, depression, headaches, constipation, memory loss, weight gain, and a host of others – many people go through life without knowing that their symptoms could be rooted in a thyroid condition.

How do thyroid replacement therapies work?

Thyroid conditions are often treated by several commercially available medications. However, they may not be the best option for every patient. Valor offers a personalized approach to compounded hormone replacement therapies for T4 (thyroxine) and T3 (liothyronine) to alleviate the many bodily systems that are negatively impacted by hypothyroidism. Your doctor can work with you to determine the compound that is the best fit for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is compounding?

Compounding is a specific process by which a pharmacist prepares customized medications to treat unique healthcare needs when no commercially available medication can address those needs adequately. For example, if you require an unavailable dosage, formula, flavor, or strength – or if there is a nationwide drug shortage of a commercially available drug – Valor Compounding Pharmacy can prepare that medication for you with a prescription from your provider.

What is the difference between commercially available medications and compounded medications?

Compounding is a specific process by which a pharmacist prepares customized medications to treat unique healthcare needs when no commercially available medication can address those needs adequately. For example, if you require an unavailable dosage, formula, flavor, or strength – or if there is a nationwide drug shortage of a commercially available drug – Valor Compounding Pharmacy can prepare that medication for you with a prescription from your provider.

How are compounded medications customized?

With a physician’s prescription, a compounding pharmacist can adjust dosage for strength or quantity, change the medication’s form (e.g., create a liquid for a child or adult who cannot swallow a pill), formulate the medication to exclude non-essential ingredients (i.e.. dyes, gluten, sugar, lactose, preservatives), or flavor certain medications for adherence to taking the medication.

Are compounded prescriptions safe?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes that the practice of pharmacy compounding is an alternative for patients who require medication that is not commercially available, or not available due to drug shortages. To ensure patient safety, all compounded prescriptions must be prescribed by a licensed provider and created by a licensed pharmacist. In addition, the products and supplies used by Valor Compounding Pharmacy come from FDA-registered and inspected wholesaler facilities.
