armour thyroid medication

I have taken this medication for 25 years without any complications or side effects. Why isn't that enough for doctors? Don't they listen to their patients anymore. Are you a doctor or just a person I'm dumping on. ## Is ArmourThyroid meds is it better than Levothyroxine ??? ## Sunshine, there is really no way to say, since we are all different, it is really a matter of trial and error to discover what medication works for you, without causing unwanted side effects that make you miserable. The FDA warns that they both may cause similar side eff...

reviews on different levothyroid generics.

My TSH goes and up and down but i mostly feel OK with TSH at 1.0 at a dose of .075. Recently my nails are splitting, hair/skin very dry and stubborn weight gain. Dr. say its all in your head and to go on a diet. My question is the history and reviews of different levothyroid manufactures. For sure i cannot find a Dr. to RX armour or T3 of any kind and I'm not crazy about trying. I'm 65 y.o. and have only my thyroid med to take.. So my next option is to consider different options with synthroid,levoxol... Milan vs.Lannett. In 1995 to 1998 My weight,skin and hair were healthy and comfortable at 1.00 synthroid? i wasn't paying attention then to 'brands' of thyroid. Then as the years went on and they changed to levothyroxine generics....i started with yearly fluctuations...

Breathing problems with Hypothyroid

I have always been active, hiking, biking, walking. I am a former smoker though. Quit almost 20 years ago. About a year ago I was diagnosed with having low Thyroid levels and was put on levothyroxine 50mg. A couple of months later after more tests it was concluded that I have Hashimotos. Time frame August 2014-Aug 2015. In Jan 15 I noticed some asthma upon exertion and after talking with my doctor he suggested I carry an inhaler when exercising. I used the inhaler twice and then nothing for a couple of months although I did notice some gradual shortening of breath and headaches. Breathing got worse in April after a severe bout with bronchitis. Went back to Dr and he decided to try me on Armour. Still having shortness of breath but still able to take walks. About a month ago I went to se...

armour thyroid replacement hormone

## what are the side effects of this drug? ## How is Armour Thyroid Replacement Hormone listed for side effects? I have taken it for years and have stacked on the lbs. I am just learning it may be the Thyroid medication that may be the issue. I take two strengths and alternate them daily. 90 one day and 120 the next, then back to 90 etc.... I am told by my dietitian I do not eat enough. I am also diabetic so sugar is eaten but rarely. I am a carb eater though. My sugars are almost in the normal range. So why all this weight gain? I understand other factors are involved here. But I wonder if the Thyroid is one of those factors? ## The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, hair loss, mood changes, and weight changes. Some people do gain weig...

Damp Armour Thyroid Pills

My opened bottle of Armour Thyroid spilled in to my damp sink. I quickly put them on a soft clean cloth to dry. Have they lost their potency? Some pills were pretty wet. ## Hello, Faye! How are you?

thyroxine headaches

Thyroxine gives me debilitating headaches. Armour Thyroid seems to do nothing. Tyrosine and iodine also give me headaches and make me perspire and feel weak. Anyone got any advice? I suffer from hypothyroidism and fibromyalgia ## Levothyroxine is a thyroid hormone used to treat people whose thyroids are underactive. That said, headaches can be a common side effect, though they normally taper off as your body adjusts to the medication. Did yours continue past a month or so? Have you tried talking to your doctor to see if there is a solution, perhaps something you can use for the headaches or to prevent them? ## I have had migraines with Levothyroxine so came off tablets but went on the liquid Iml syringe at a time and increase every three days; this seems to be working. Hope this helps! ...
