For more than 80 years, Nature-Throid has helped countless patients manage their hypothyroidism. When we learned there was a need for an even purer option, we created WP Thyroid for those who are especially ingredient-sensitive. To support all hypothyroid patients, whether they were on our medications or not, we created a Facebook page where resources, information, and community could be found. Everything we have ever done has been done keeping in mind our top priority: patients. You know and deserve better from us.
We sincerely apologize to everyone who has felt severe strain because of the backorder. We take full responsibility and are doing everything in our power to get back to our usual pace as quickly as possible while maintaining our strict quality standards.
Progress is made every day on the Nature-Throid and WP Thyroid shortage and we will keep working around the clock until ALL strengths are fully stocked and available again.
Thank you for your continued support.

Warnings: Don’t Take For
Use WP Thyroid® and Nature-Throid® exactly as prescribed. Unless otherwise directed by your doctor, do not stop taking either medication or alter how often it’s taken. Many factors can contribute to the length of time symptoms are alleviated, though generally people feel an improvement within a few weeks. For some, though, improvement in symptoms may take up to three months. Your doctor will determine which dose is right for you. If any life changes or new symptoms occur, consult your doctor to adjust your dose. Continue to see your doctor until your dosage levels prove stable based on your lab work, then continue to see your doctor at their request. Thyroid replacement therapy is usually taken for life.
