I have been on 1 grain Armour Thyroid for and 75 mg levothyroxine for about 15 years but I am finding it difficult financially. I went to see a endo Dr Z a couple of months ago and did my blood tests which were free T4 of 16.8. T3 of 3.6 and tSH of 0.01. He prescribed me to go up from 75 Levothyroxine to 100 and take Liothyronine 2mcg half twice a day.
This was about 6 weeks ago and when I made the switch my hair became really dry and lots more than normal falling out so I thought it wS because of change in medication so I ordered some more Armour only to find the price increased fro £51 to £75 and I've been told they will be doing another increase very soon by 50%.
Has anyone had a successful switch from armour to Liothyronine perhaps it was not the switch that caused the hair problem any advice greatly appreciated.
