I have been on Erfa Thyroid (6 grains or 360 mg) daily for the past few months. I don't really like the 125 mg pills (different fillers and binders?), and feel much better on the 30 and 60 mg pills so, last time I ordered, I asked the pharmacy to replace one 125 mg pills bottle by two 60 mg pills bottles...it has worked just fine, and I have managed to rid myself of most if not all hypo symptoms. I just got my latest labs back, from five days ago:
FT4 1.2 (0.7-1.5)
FT3 3.6 (1.7-3.7)
anti-TPO <6 UI/mL (down from 6000 at the time of diagnosis)
anti-thyrogloubline 4 UI/mL (<4)
However, my doctor wants me to switch to Armour, because that is what she takes herself, and she believes that is the best thyroid drug.
I wonder: has anyone successfully switched from Erfa to Armour? I would hesitate to switch, now that my FT4 levels are finally mid-range (or even slightly above), and my FT3 levels close to the upper normal range...where I understand they should be?!
