Thyroid disorders are quickly becoming one of the most recognized medical conditions in functional medicine. Providers are learning more about thyroid hormones and the effect they have on a person’s quality of life, how they relate to symptoms that used to be correlated with other medical conditions such as depression, chronic fatigue, and obesity.

It is wonderful news that providers are starting to recognize thyroid imbalances as the root cause of a patient’s symptoms, but the treatment for these disorders is still a very confusing process due to the immense variability in individual patient needs and the medications available.

Common commercially available thyroid medications such as Synthroid, generic Levothyroxine (T4), and Liothyronine (T3) are only available in standardized doses, which can be a problem because every patient is different and may not fit the “standard” dose available to see results and changes in their symptoms. But there is a solution to this problem!

Compounded thyroid medication allows for an individualized approach to treating thyroid disorders. Providers and pharmacists work together to create a patient-specific thyroid medication to fit the exact demands for that patient, and have the ability to provide a medication that is the perfect fit for that specific patient.

What is in thyroid medications?

The most common type of commercial thyroid medication prescribed by primary care physicians tends to be name brand Synthroid, or its generic version, Levothyroxine. This medication is made to supplement the T4 hormone. T4 is the precursor hormone that is converted by enzymes in the body to form T3, which is the active thyroid hormone that interacts with cellular functions throughout the body. This may improve patient symptoms but not treat them completely if the patient’s body lacks the ability to convert all of the T4 into T3. 

There are many factors that can impact the body’s ability to convert T4 into T3, including:

Depressive mood and fatigue are one of the most common symptoms of thyroid disorders, and unfortunately, they are also one of the biggest factors affecting conversion of T4 to T3. Depression symptoms are linked to low T3 levels in the body due to impaired conversion from T4, the more a person’s T3 levels decline, the greater the depression symptoms, which as a result, further decreases the conversion of T4 to T3. It’s a vicious cycle that many people experience even when prescribed one of these T4 medications.

So why does this matter?

This evidence just goes to show that even when a patient is actively taking their T4 medication, their symptoms may not improve because their body is unable to optimally use the T4 being supplemented. In this case, providers may prescribe another commercially available medication known as Liothyronine, which is T3 only. Improving the body’s T3 levels supplies the body with the active hormone it needs to reduce their symptoms, which in turn, improves their body’s ability to convert the T4 that they are also taking.

This is great, but now you have to remember to take two different prescriptions all the time and hope that your body metabolizes both correctly, which doesn’t always happen in every person. According to Dr. Westin Childs, numerous studies, dating back to 2018, have concluded that some patients experience better results from taking combined T3 and T4 prescriptions when compared to taking both of them separately.

So is compounded thyroid medication better than commercially available medications?

In short, the answer almost every single time will be yes. There are no health benefits offered a commercial thyroid medication, that a compounded one doesn’t also offer. The treatment options are limitless, offering benefits to patients whose requirements are unachievable using standardized doses of commercial thyroid medications.

  1. Compounded thyroid medication is able to be made specifically for a patient’s body’s requirements. No more hearing “this is the closest dose available to treat your symptoms”.
  2. All prescriptions can have potential side effects and drawbacks – these can be minimized by compounding specific ingredients that patients may be sensitive to, or by adding an ingredients that a patient may be lacking in.
  3. Compounded thyroid medication offers the convenience and metabolic benefits of taking the T3 and T4 as one combined pill, rather than two separate.
  4. Different medications vary in the types and amounts of carriers, binders, fillers, and dyes used in their formulation, which can impact how a patient feels. There have been different medical studies that have shown that patients react differently to different brands of the same medication due to the other ingredients in each formulation. Recharge Rx compounds do not contain dyes or any other filler ingredients that are known to impact the person taking it. Compounded thyroid medication gives the patient the ability to avoid any kind of specific filler or dye that they may have a sensitivity to.
  5. Patients that can’t get the treatment they need because there isn’t a standard dose that fits their needs are able to have a thyroid medication made specifically for their body’s requirements so that they may experience the benefits of optimizing their thyroid gland function.
  6. Retail pharmacies follow pricing guidelines set by pharmaceutical companies, so depending on a person’s insurance coverage, the price of their commercially available thyroid medication can vary greatly and be quite expensive to some. Our compounding pharmacy does not have to follow these pricing guidelines, while still being able to produce safe and effective custom medications for much cheaper by leaving out expensive fillers and dyes or by slapping a popular name brand label on the bottle.

So should I switch to a compounded thyroid medication?

Although insurance won’t cover our compounded thyroid medication, spending an average of $30-$60 out of pocket to finally feel relief from your thyroid disorder’s symptoms and feel your very best is priceless compared to feeling “a little better” or “okay” from commercially available thyroid medications that are covered by insurance. The pros greatly outweigh the cons when comparing the different forms that you can be taking

Recharge RX can fill any prescriptions from your current provider so be sure to talk to them about your current treatment and ways you could benefit from a compounded thyroid dose if you aren’t satisfied with your current results from your standardized dose. Or if you’re not satisfied with your current provider’s treatment plan, or if you’re just interested in getting a second opinion, give us a call at 352-512-9996 to find out more information about our Hormone Replacement Therapy treatments, led by hormone specialist Dr. Steve Tieche, M.D., to see if Recharge Clinic may be a better fit for your health and wellness goals.

We offer free consultations and a different approach to patient treatment, focusing on how you feel and want to feel and not solely on the number of lab results.

Recharge Rx is a distinguished private compounding pharmacy in the heart of North Central Florida, here to serve you for all of your pharmaceutical needs! A compounding pharmacy makes custom formulations of medications tailored to fit the unique needs of a patient that can’t be met with what is commercially available.

Recharge Rx owners Dr. Steve Tieche and his wife Cynthia Tieche made the decision to open this pharmacy after seeing the importance of custom doses for patients at their medical office, Recharge Clinic. Dr. Tieche takes a very personalized approach to treating his patients and understands that everyone’s bodies are different, so a “one size fits all” medication prevented him from being able to help his patients reach their individual health goals. They saw the need for a pharmacy able to make custom doses for their patients and opened Recharge Rx to do just that.

Recharge Rx is a fully functioning pharmacy complete with generic and name brand prescription and over-the-counter medications, supplements and vitamins, CBD products, and skin care products, with the added benefit of making custom prescriptions for patients. The Recharge family is so excited to have this opportunity to help patients optimize their health, and give medical professionals the ability to send prescriptions to a pharmacy capable of compounding personalized medications.

What makes a compounding pharmacy different from a regular pharmacy?

A compounding pharmacy has the same ability to carry commercial drugs that are available at your typical pharmacy, but with the added benefit of being able to create custom prescriptions as well. A compounding pharmacy can make custom formulations of medications designed to fit the unique needs of a patient that would be otherwise unavailable in generic pharmacy. In a compounding pharmacy, licensed pharmacists have the ability to make combinations of medications, as well as different forms, such as:

Regular Pharmacy vs. Compounding Pharmacy:

Regular –

Compounding –

Compounding pharmacies have the ability to create medication forms that offer the most convenient and effective application/route of administration (Ex. A patient needs a specific combination of T3 and T4 thyroid hormone medications that is only available as two separate prescriptions at a regular pharmacy. A compounding pharmacy can create one prescription that contains the prescribed dose of each hormone.)

So what’s the benefit of a compounding pharmacy?

A compounding pharmacy’s ability to create custom medications, as well as offer commercially available medications, offers many benefits to both patients and providers. Patients have access to medications that are the perfect fit to their needs, and providers have the ability to prescribe customized medications, giving them the ability to provide a better, more personalized treatment to their patients.

Benefits of a compounding pharmacy include:

  1. Personalized prescriptions
  2. Convenience – combining multiple ingredients into one formulation can reduce the number of medications that a patient has to remember to take every day
  3. Provides access to pharmaceuticals that may no longer be commercially available
  4. Offers unique treatments and special medication formulas
  5. Medication forms that are easier to administer to patients that may be difficult/picky (children, elderly adults, etc.)
  6. Reduced risk of side effects and allergic reactions caused by certain ingredients that can be eliminated 
  7. Costs less than commercial medications – by subtracting the costs of patented pre-mixed formulas and expensive commercial dyes and preservatives allows compounding pharmacies to create high-quality, personalized prescriptions medications at an affordable price

What kind of medications can Recharge Rx provide to me?
