This medicine has been a true gift to me. After having two thyroid surgeries I am finally feeling like my old self. I take 75 micrograms of Armour. Not generic. I sleep about 10 hours a night. Most Dr's seem to be afraid of this medicine . After surgery my Dr. Ordered Synthroid. I can't take that it does nothing for me.i will be seeing my Endo today and telling her I am still on Armour.

I have taken several different medications and now on Armour. I have just recently found that liothyronine and levothyroxine in all that i have taken had caused granuloma annulare. This has taken over my body and now i need to find another drug without either of these.

I started taking Armour Thyroid about 15 years ago. I have not had to increase it much and I have had no side effects as long as I take it every day. when I miss 2 or 3 days I get light headed and very dizzy.
