Question -First time taking Armour Thyroid

HI All: I'm hoping some of you may be able to give me a little information. I switched to Armour because I started not to feel so well on Levoxyl. I try to walk 2 miles every other day but one day recently it was difficult to complete my walk. When I arrived home, I was completely exhausted, had no energy and went to bed for the rest of the day and didn't get up until the next morning. Even then, I was still tired. My TSH test hovers around .1 (?) so I couldn't increase the levoxyl. I've been taking Levoxyl for 16 years. Switched yesterday to Armour thyroid - 30 mgs daily in 2 15 mg doses. But all day, I experienced frequent need to urinate and by by late afternoon I was feeling very tired. I talked to the pharmacist about this but she said I shouldn't have any side effects. Has anyone had this experience when starting out? And, I saw something that said I should chew the tablets. Is that true? Thank you for any help you can give me. Daphne
