armour 1/4 grain availability

Has anyone else had problems getting these?

Got the 1 grain no problem still waiting after 10 days for the 1/4. Started cutting the 1's up, as I have blood test and doctors appointment already booked, it can take nearly a month too get a blood test at our surgery?

I went too boots for the prescription as they have been so helpful he had the 1 grain in stock?, he said it maybe I will have too try an alterative I explained that I really want armour as I have had such good results so far.

Is this happening too other armour users please?

Many thanks karen

Whenever there is a supply problem with Armour, the US sites get flooded with people saying so.

I can find nothing in a quick search. So it is likely to be a problem with how your Boots gets theirs rather than widespread.

On the other hand, maybe a problem has not yet become obvious to US patients?



The pharmacist at my surgery who has been really helpful with getting my Armour had difficulty over the Christmas and New Year period and I had to wait longer than usual but seems to be back to normal now.


I got some 1/4 grain tablets two weeks ago from America - no problems with my prescription :) I would try another pharmacy. xx


thank you I will k x


Armour is fairly easy to quarter, but use your fingernails as opposed to a knife.
