After many false starts and after advice from people on here I persisted with 1/4 grain of Armour on alternate days as previous attempts had given me all sorts of side effects.
This time I seemed to tolerate it but just before Christmas, after taking it for about 2 months, I was feeling exhausted. I put this down to Christmas preparations but after Christmas day was over I wondered if I needed to up my dose. As previously when I was on Levothyroxine I also had exhaustion when I was on too high a dose so I decided to reduce the dose first.
I didn't take any for 5 days and the exhaustion went. The other thing that happened was I lost weight due to the loss of fluid. I hadn't realised that I had fluid retention until then. Also the stiffness reduced which I think must have been caused by the fluid.
Now I am taking 1/4 grain every third day to see how am with that. It is such a small dose but if I just take Nutri Thyroid I still get Hypo symptoms.
