You'd think it would be okay with the insurance. Am not so sure about my endo. He balked at Nature-Throid. I'm almost afraid to ask but I think I'm going to try, anyway. Wish me luck, I'm going to need it!!

It's hardly obscure. It's been out for over a year and many are doing well on it. My insurance covered mine gladly because it's a generic it's cheaper for them also.

Is it covered by insurance? Just curious. I'm wondering if I can get my endo to prescribe it if it's so obscure.

Acella is the company name that manufactures this. It is a generic dessicated thyroid med. To get this, the RX would be written as NP thyroid. Any Walgreens will have this. Since it's a generic, it is very reasonably priced. My 150 tablets cost like 10 bucks.

Do I have that spelled right? I'm interested in getting my perscription changed from Nature-Throid to Acela. I called MEDCO and they don't have Acela listed. I had him try other spellings, as well. Nothing. He thought, perhaps, my prescription plan through my husband's company disallows it for some reason. Anyone else have a difficult time finding this new dessicated thyroid hormone medication? Seems to me someone wrote it's a generic of Armour. Maybe Armour decided to put out a drug according to the old formula with some sucrose for filler instead of the "new and improved" cellulose filler in the new Armour? I have my Nature-Throid perscription, waiting to be filled so if someone could respond....Purr, I know you are taking Acela, now. Where did you get it from?
