It has long been a concern of natural desiccated thyroid users that cannot take the synthetic versions that the FDA will eventually ban the natural desiccated version in favor of the newer, more expensive synthetic alternatives that will yield more profits for the drug companies. It seems that day has finally come. The FDA has halted production on Time Cap labs natural dessicated thyroid medicine and every other major brand has experienced a "shortage" and does not know when or if they will come back in stock. The reason for the time caps shutdown according to the FDA's own written statements to Time Caps lab was because (after 100 years of use!), they claim natural desiccated thyroid is NOT generally recognized as safe or "grandfathered", and therefore according to their Compliance Guide of 2006 is considered an unapproved new drug! According to the Compliance Guide all unapproved new drugs will have to go through the new drug approval process or they will be banned. Meanwhile, natural desiccated thyroid users were given no warning that production was going to be shut down, and many cannot live without this medication and cannot take the alternative. Tell the FDA that natural desiccated thyroid IS GRASE and they should not ban it! If they do so, thousands of people could die. Thank you.Sign PetitionSign Petition
