Meds from compounding pharmacy?

Hi ! Again thanks to everyone for responding.
I just got back from DOs visit. MY FT3 came back as 321 (230-420).
He said it is in normal range, but not what he considers optimal. He said since my T4 is low he is going to give me T3 and T4. From what I am gathering here this is the correct thing to do?
He said he is ordering from a compounding pharmacy. I noticed on the slip he sends to pharmacy there was a check for Armour or compounded. He checked compounded. This is totally new to me, does anyone know what this is?
Thanks Anne

I have heard of this before on this board, but I don't know that much about it and can't remember what was posted. Perhaps if you do a search on the thyroid boards for compounding pharmacy you may find the thread that talked about this.
