How to Easily File a Claim Related to a Nature-Throid Recall
Taking care of one's health means taking medications prescribed by our doctors. Our bodies function better with them, and they can help us lead healthier lives. However, what happens when your medication like ?
It can seem frustrating, and perhaps a little worrisome if you aren't sure why exactly the product was recalled. DoNotPay can not only help get you back your money, but we can also help explain why it was recalled, to begin with.
Why Do Some Products Get Recalled?
Recalls can sound scary. There are questions that come up, like why is it being recalled, is the product potentially dangerous, and can it negatively affect my health? To understand this, you need to know what exactly a product recall is, and why it's important to get it off the shelves.
According to ASQ, a recall is when the manufacturer realizes there is a potential problem with the product and decides to recall it. This can mean that the consumer can either exchange it, get a refund, or replace the product with a newer model.
What is Nature-Throid?
Nature-Throid is a hypothyroidism medication that is designed to help treat an underactive thyroid. It is prescribed by a doctor and isn't available over the counter at this time.
Why is Nature-Throid Being Recalled?
According to the FDA, RLC Labs, the maker of both Nature-Throid and WP Thyroid, has agreed to a voluntary recall. This is because six lots tested by the FDA were found to be sub potent. This means the product is not as effective at treating the condition as the manufacturer advertises it to be.
The lab tests revealed that only 87% of the active drugs Liothyronine (T3) or Levothyroxine (T4) were in the tested products.
If you have taken Nature-Throid and wonder what the symptoms are if you received a sub potent product, you should look out for:
|Common side effects||
|Pregnant women and infants with hypothyroidism||
|Elderly patients and patients with underlying cardiac health problems||
Do I Immediately Get a Recall if I Report My Product?
Yes, you do get an immediate recall on your Nature-Throid or WP Thyroid medication. Here are the lot numbers of the affected products:
- WP Thyroid-119142
You can try getting a recall yourself by contacting the company. This means either emailing them or waiting on the phone for someone from customer service to pick up. It can be a long, drawn-out frustrating problem that may not seem worth it by the time you're done.
Rather than quitting, however, let DoNotPay help.
