On the advice of my nutritionist, I asked and persuaded my G.P. to switch me from Levo to Armour Thyroid but I've read a few other messages on here now about doing a gradual switch over and even a split dosage.
I have been taking my normal dose of Levo ....50mcg a day because I was unsure how long it would take for the Armour to be obtained by the pharmacy but each grain is 60mg and quite small to halve. My G.P. won't be in surgery till next week now and it's so hard to get an appointment with him to check things. I really want to get started on this soon, as I'm also starting today on Low-Dose Naltrexone, which the pharmacy have sent no leaflet with and I have to look up any tips for taking that too.
I shall be starting on lots of supplements too in the next few days because on top of having Hashimoto's, Type 1 Diabetes and Reflex Syncope, just prior to Christmas, I tested positive for Lyme Disease. Getting the right treatment for Lyme Disease in this country is horrendous as the NHS think a short course of antibiotics solves everything, so alongside my G.P. I have a great nutritionist helping me.
I've scared myself witless researching Lyme Disease because Chronic Lyme is so hard to eradicate once it takes hold.
So, as you can imagine, my brain is in a whirl and I am determined to try everything to reclaim my health, starting with this thyroid med switch.
Has anyone just leapt from Levo to Armour Thyroid on a similar dosage to me, with success?
All positive feedback most welcome.
Wishing all other posters better soon. X
