How can I tell for sure what my compounding pharmacy prepared for me is really my medication and they didn't give me someone elses? There are no markings on the green and orange capsule for it to be checked against the drug identification checker. It's suppose to have porcine thyroid in the capsule, but how can I be for sure?!
That's correct - it won't have the same markings. If anything it is more correct - the pharmacist hand made it just for you, and without all the fillers and dyes, which our bodies don't need. Compounding pharmacies are used to doing this - they have much more things to consider for you rather than any pharmacy. You get a pharmacist's full attention in making your prescription by hand! I have many meds that are compounded and feel I am blessed to not have all that extra nonsense (preservatives, fillers and dyes) in my medications. You are also not getting dyes in the capsule itself if it is all clear in color. Great! Regards - EJ23

Levothyroxine - I have been an Armour Thyroid user until recently. I know it can be compounded, but?
