I have been on Armour Thyroid for over 18 years! And glad that I am on it. I started out on Synthroid for 7 years, then it stopped working and switched to the Armour (I was living in a different state then). My current problem is finding a doctor who will prescribe it. My PCP decided to stop prescribing it and the only Endo in town also refuses it. So I'm in search of a new doctor 30miles a ... Show Full Comment

Wish there were more recent posted out here, hopefully I can be of assistance to others looking for answers. Guess when people are doing well they don’t share their experience but are ready to hoot and holler when all is bad. I Just started taking Armour on 7/29 haven't had any side effects yet.

I started 60 mg over a year ago and had varying doses of Levothyroxine to go with it. Kept having recurring bouts of being tired, confused, frustrated. Since increasing to 90 mg and dropping Levothyroxine I feel 100% better. Like a light switch came on that had been out for years!! So thankful for a good Dr. who knows how to treat this condition.

This is the only medication I know of that treats T3. I take 120 mg, down from 180 mg. My insurance wants me to switch to Sinthroid which doesnt treat T3. This drug has helped immensely. My skin used to bleed from the dry patches and hair was falling out. Also, I was really sluggish. I would rather pay cash than switch to something else. Anyone struggling may want to try the Thyroid Diet boo ... Show Full Comment

I've been on 15mg of this since early April. I do not feel any better. I am having less side effects than when I was on NP Thyroid. The side effects that are bothering me the most are: intolerance to heat and increased sweating. I'm having my TSH done tomorrow and will have to see my dr in 7-10 days.
