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.

I hope I can keep feeling this way like before I was diagnosed with hypothyroid ... Show Full Comment

Nearly six months on 60mg. Numbers look good. Symptoms remain the same, or worse. I plan to add 1/2 pill this week and monitor myself. I used synthroid years ago, no help. I read to ask for NDT, so I did and Endo said ok to try.

Comment:
Began taking Armour 90mg. but have been lowered several times since to now 15mg. because of heart palpitations. I would suggest all of you go to Dr. Mercola's website and type in "hypothyroidism" in the search box. Lots of good information. He suggests that you take the medicine twice a day because it does not stay in your system 24 hrs. Maybe that is most people's problem. As ... Show Full Comment
