I have a few unopened bottles of Armour, all expiring in mid-2016. I decided to open one of them today (I have been on Erfa lately and doing fine, so it was actually stupid of me to even consider going back on Armour...). I was on Armour a few years ago, felt great on it for the first six months (until mid-2012), then went downhill and switched to Erfa. I used to chew Armour up, and remember the pills being rather hard but not tasting awful.
However, this morning, the pill felt softer, and my hand looked covered in fluor just from holding it between two fingers. I chewed it up, it broke easily, but tasted horrible...so horrible that there is no way I could take this for the rest of my life, at least not if I have to chew it up.
I cannot really trust my memory, but I don't recall the pills being this soft or tasting this bad back in 2011-12, when I first went on Armour, or I would never had been able to take it for six months...
Has anyone else experienced this?
