Re: Question -First time taking Armour Thyroid

Welcome to the board although I'm sorry for the reason you're here.

the meds titrating process takes time and patience and on top of that some more time and patience. 2 days is way too soon to be feeling any improvement so please don't despair. a good idea to give it a month.
30 mcg is not much so you'll likely need an increase . As you might know it's recommended to retest 6 weeks after a dosage adjustment.

In your first post I notice something about TSh and not being able to increase your dosage since it was low already. Dosing should be done mainly based on the Free levels (FT4 and FT3) together with symptoms. Most need their free levels (FT4 and FT3) at least midrange or higher in order to be symptomfree, so you want to have those tested too next time. Please also keep in mind you don't take your thyroid medication before bloodtesting since it can cause a false peak in the blood.

hang in there!
