I am a Brit living in the States and my new doctor is putting me on Armor as from today. I believe that she is starting me off on 75. She did say that it will probably need a lot of tweaking to get it right and I will probably take more than one dose per day.
I have no idea what to expect, so just thought I'd ask you guys.
I had been on 150 on Levothyroxine in the UK but constantly blipped for several years with the occasional increase in meds and my wonderful doc in the UK would kind of do a best of two blood tests to make sure I was never under dosing.
When I first got to the States, the only medication that could be offered to me was Synthroid by my first doctor here. I was going to see an Endo but we moved away and had to change our docs again so never got around to it. I never ever felt good on the Synthroid, especially as the doc insisted I take 125 and 150 on alternating days, which really is a decrease in medication.
My current doctor said that she looked at my results from just before we moved showed that blood test showed that I had really bombed and now wonder I felt so tired, gained so much weight etc etc...that's when she said lets try the Armour before getting referred to an Endo.
She ordered bloods yesterday and they came back as a normal thyroid function.
I was pleased that they came back "normal" but shocked that they were...I am wondering if the two cups of coffee did that...lol.
Anyway, sorry for the long one but just thought I'd cover some background...but I need all the advice I can get on what to expect on Amor.
