June 13, 2009 – The levothyroxine wasn’t working. The pharmacy didn’t have 100 pills of Armour, so they gave me a couple doses to tide me over until they get more on Monday.

August 14, 2009 – I found some of the old formula at Walgreens. I started on the new formula and wanted to stay on it, but it’s backordered. I am going to run out before the backorder is made up, so I bought one month’s worth from Walgreens to tide me over. They only had the 60mg strength so I have to take two a day to equal the 120mg I am on.

This is definitely the old stuff. When I bit into the tablets they had the distinct taste of dextrose, which was a binder in the old pills. The new pills have no dextrose binder and taste like chalk.

    I’ve been reading about how much more effective Armour thyroid is than levothyroxine. Good luck and prayers!

    In my case my Free T3 stayed low no matter what dose of levothyroxine (T4) I took. Armour has both T3 and T4 so hopefully this will help get my T3 levels up. I even had a Reverse T3 test done (came back normal) and that pretty much confirmed that I just do not convert T4 into T3 very well at all. I told the doctor that I put myself on 150mcg levo for the last two weeks and that I felt better so I asked for 120mg Armour, the equivalent to 150mcg levo.

    Are you just on levo?

    No…I’m actually reading ahead of myself. :) I’m not on any thyroid meds yet…just doing research and considering the possibility that I’m hypothyroid based on some symptoms I have. I’m trying some supplements from my chiropractor first.

    Go to your doctor ask for TSH, Free T3, and Free T4 tests. They are simple blood tests. Supplements canm do more harm than good. For example, most hypo people have Hashimoto’s and supplements with iodine can do more harm than good.
