I've got a call into Acella (which used to be called Brookstone Pharmaceuticals) to get more information about the Acella manufactured natural thyroid drug, and find out what fillers, ingredients, and such are being used.
In the meantime. however, thyroid patients taking natural desiccated thyroid have been through enough with the Armour Thyroid reformulations and natural thyroid shortages, and the last thing many of you need is a pharmacy substituting yet another medication for your Armour Thyroid. So when you are getting a refill of Armour Thyroid, if you do not want to get the generic Acella product, be sure to have your doctor specify "No substitutions/DAW (Dispense as Written)" on your prescription. And if you're picking up an Armour prescription, you may want to double check your pills before you even leave the pharmacy.
