I found good news....seems that the problem is only related to Armour thyroid, because Forest pharmaceuticals tried to reformulate their product without applying for an NDA from the FDA.....big no no! Forest pharmaceuticals just shot themselves in the foot by doing that. They should have known better....
If you take Armour thyroid and cannot get it due to a backorder problem, Naturthroid is still available.....as far as I can tell.
I don't mind using another natural thyroid formulation, but I will NOT go back to Synthroid.

One might ask: WHY is there a "nationwide shortage of descicated pig thyroid" used to make this medicine? WHERE is it all going? WHO exactly might have a massive alternative demand for the thyroids of pigs? And just why is the govt in the middle of it, keeping it out of the private pharmaceutical manufacturing market???
