I have started Armour nearly a week ago now, touch wood no adverse affects as yet!!
I have got the ct3m book, and believe it or not I have read it.
I went from 75mcg levo one day to the armour the next. I do have low cortisol.
The main question is how do I dose the armour with the ct3m method after the initial dosage? I can't seem to find the information in pauls book that i'm looking for. Some kind of reference to dose or timings....think i need to have another dam good luck but its getting the time with my little terror lol.
I had a look through the sttm site and I read about starting on one grain but ofcourse it doesn't go into detail on the timings. I understand the am dose but, a bit iffy on the maybe mid morning/ evening dose timings and amounts.
Also aslong as its not calcium or iron can you eat near to taking armour?
At present I am taking 1/2 a grain 6.30am ish, then at 3pm i'm taking a quarter grain. I started at the beginning of the week on 1/4 2xpd one am at the same time, and one quarter at 3pm.
Symptoms so far-well maybe the second day of taking this I had this terrible uncomfortable sensation in my ears, so hard to explain how it feels, it made my eyes stream, the sensation really went through me, it was almost like pressure, I've had this before but this time it was much worse, it happened in the night and hasn't happened since.
Also tightness in my throat has been more noticable, but this has been happening prior to the armour aswell, but it seems to be slightly worse, especially after any increases and then it settles a bit. Anxiety-I felt anxious before going to bed last night and had to sleep it off, and I guess i'm quite stressed with little things at the moment but this may not be the armour.
Benefits so far, well i'm not exactly sure there could be a benefit so far, but its just a mild improvement if anything. I am still on a low dose and at this stage just appreciate minimal side affects.
Has anyone else experienced a more uncomfortable throat when changing meds?
A huge TIA
