 3  Can not tolerate Synthetic Thyroid Seems like I get seasonal side effects. When the weather changes. But I have also experienced problems with adjusting doesage When I get a new refill. It's like the new batch of Armour is different taste and texture from the last refill batch. Does anyone else experience this? Better then the others F 59 100 days
60mg 1X D
 5  Hypothyroid I have been taking this on and off for many years due to Hashimoto. First hyper blow out and then hypo. Went on this right away when I turned to hypo. TSH is alway low or nonexistence. Read about that because that is normal on this. I have gone from Armour to Efra to other brands depending on the drama of the manufacturing. Couldn't live without it. Check out Stop the Thyroid Madness It might take some work to figure out the dosage. Check out Stop The Thyroid Madness website, they show you how to figure with synthetic to natural desiccated. ( and no I have nothing to do with that site) F 66 20 years

 5  Hypothyroid since age 13, now 76 None! All good. I lost the excess 30# of weight, stay awake more, have hair return, have energy, better mood, life is good again. I have always tested out low in my blood work & wonder what normal would even look/feel like. Synthetics do not work for me, lost 3 years of my life sleeping excessively on 5-6 of them. Never again! Damn doctor "didn't believe" in using Armour. Finally found another doctor before my life was over. F 76 63 years

 5  Low thyroid No side effects. Couldn't get out of bed in the am, before going on Armour. Gives me enough energy to get through the day. Low thyroid was diagnosed with 24 hr urine test. Blood tests did not show low thyroid. F 55 8 years

 4  Hypothyroid Was put on too low of a dose at first and didn't feel well on it at first as it was not raised properly, but once it was then all was good It was THYROID BY ERFA that I took, a Natural Dessicated Thyroid Med comparable to Armour F 56 1 years

 5  low thyroid none Sometimes hard to find. I pay for 90 supply when I find it because when it is out of stock, no pharmacy can get it for weeks. I usually have to wait a week or longer for my Rx to be filled. F 62 4 years
30MG 1X D
 4  Hashimoto's Thyroiditis None as of yet OMG! My hands warmed up within the first week of taking this, no more ice cold hands, even in summer. I alternate 15mg and 30 mg every other day. I do think I would benefit from a jump in dosage as some of my other Hashimotos symptoms could be improved. Blood work this month and doctor's visit to discuss dosage... we'll see. F 48 6 months
15 mg 1X D
 4  Half of Thyroid removed nodule Constipation, weight gain It's the best thing I've been on to maintain a decent energy level I sleep better, I'm not losing as much hair, brain fog is lessened F 42 1 years

ARMOUR THYROID  (THYROID; LEVOTHYROXINE; LIOTHYRONINE):  Thyroid hormone is used to treat underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). It is a natural product made from animal thyroid glands (usually a pig's). It replaces or provides more thyroid hormone, which is normally produced by the thyroid gland. Low thyroid hormone levels can occur naturally or when the thyroid gland is injured by radiation/medications or removed by surgery. Having enough thyroid hormone is important for maintaining normal mental and physical activity. In children, having enough thyroid hormone is important for normal mental and physical development. This medication is also used to treat other types of thyroid disorders (such as certain types of goiters, thyroid cancer) and also to test for thyroid function. This medication should not be used to treat infertility unless it is caused by low thyroid hormone levels. Older adults should discuss the risks and benefits of this medication with their doctor or pharmacist.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
