Comment:
Have had Hypothyroidism for decades, treated with Synthroid but never felt truly well. My Chiropractor suggested a Dr. who specialized in natural hormones, he put me on Armour medication, bad mistake. I felt terrible, when I called him, he told me to treble the dose! My hands swelled up like baseball mitts. Most probably a really lousy Dr. I followed this with a visit to a Endrochronologist at Emo ... Show Full Comment

I have been on this medication since 4/30. My doctor only prescribed 15mg once a day. I still feel tired in the afternoon. The joints in my feet don't hurt nearly as bad. I've lowered my calorie intake, but still can't lose the weight. I feel extremely hot in my feet, hands, and trunk right before I go to bed. I was having some of those symptoms before and they're not going a ... Show Full Comment

I have hypothyroidism and was prescribed Armour Thyroid 120mg on Jan 16, 2015, 10 weeks now since starting it. I've had positive results and no side effects at all. I feel less tired in the daytime where I used to nearly fall asleep and could barely keep my eyes opened. In the last month I've lost a pound a week with no dieting, just eating what I normally do. This must be an indication t ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I've been on Armour 60 mg. for 8 months and I really feel as tired as when I was on Synthroid and Levothyroxin although my recent labs indicate the Armour is working. I have to agree with the one reader who's appetite increased. I am always hungry and have gained about 8 lbs within the last 6 months. I'm going to have to try and skip a dose and see if that helps with the weight gain. A ... Show Full Comment
