We are happy to share that, while we are still working through the backorder, we are in production and are actively shipping the strengths listed above. At the bottom of this page are suggestions for doctors and pharmacies that are having trouble obtaining available strengths, and for patients having trouble locating them.
Nature-Throid and WP Thyroid unfortunately became backordered primarily due to major hurdles we started experiencing in obtaining a key raw material. These hurdles disrupted our ability to not only keep up with the growing demand for our medications, but to also keep them cost-effective. We ate burgeoning costs for as long as we could to maintain the affordability of our medications, and had minimal price increases compared to others, but the path was unsustainable. Everything needed to ensure fulfillment of all backorders and uninterrupted, ongoing full-scale production is now in place and we are hard at work getting back to our usual pace.
Despite what you may have heard, here are the REAL facts:
RLC Labs is NOT going out of business, nor have we been acquired by any other company.
There are no issues with our licensing and the backorder is completely unrelated to anything dealing with the FDA.
Neither of our medications, nor any strengths of them, are being discontinued.
We stay committed to maintaining the affordability of our medications. Pharmacies set their own prices, but ours have not changed.
Our strict quality standards apply to every part of our operation–from our guaranteed hormone levels to our materials and manufacturing–which is why we carefully source our thyroid from the U.S. and Canada and are only in production in the continental U.S.
We sincerely apologize for the strain this delay has caused for our customers and patients. Every effort is being made to get all strengths stocked as quickly as possible without compromising our strict quality standards.
Your understanding and continued support are greatly appreciated as we make every effort to get back on track as quickly as possible.
DOCTORS AND PHARMACISTS: If you are unable to obtain available strengths and have already submitted updated usage and/or placed an order with your distribution center, please contact us directly for assistance via the Provider tab on our contact form.
PATIENTS: If you are having trouble getting an available strength from your local pharmacies, we recommend checking any of the mail-order pharmacies listed on our website. The states shown only indicate where they are located; please check the pharmacy’s website or contact them to see where they ship. When getting your prescription filled through any pharmacy–brick & mortar or mail-order–we also recommend asking for both the cash price and insurance price (pending coverage) as all pharmacies set their own prices.
