I'm going to ask to be switched from Synthroid to Armour and it looks like I will need 60 mg of Armour (I'm on .088 mg of synthroid).
What I'm wondering is do I need to ask for 30 mg tablets and take them twice a day?
Those of you on this board on Armour.....do you take one tablet only in the morning and feel fine? or do you all need to divide the dose.
I read in another post that Armour only lasts about 8 to 10 hours in your system.
Would like to hear from evryone who is doing well on Armour.
I take my Armour only once, in the morning an hour before I eat. I have never experienced the p.m. 'crash' that some do. Plus, it would be inconvenient to time taking a second pill around my way of eating, and it would be another thing I don't want to have to remember. Once a day works fine for me.
However, until you determine whether you might need to split the dose, you could ask for your first script in 30 mg tablets. I recommend you try the 'once a day' method at the start, just for convenience's sake. If it works out for you, it's simpler that way.
Waaaaa, I wish I never experienced the "crash", but I do, sigh. For the first few days of taking my Armour in the morning I was fine, but after a few days I started experiencing "the crash" in the afternoons. My Endo wouldn't even listen to me when I tried to ask him about that, grrrrrrr.
Hopefully you will only have to take it once a day! Good luck and let us know how you do.
I take it once a day, it works great for me. I have been feeling a little tired recently but I think it is allergies, the allergy season is almost over and hopefully I will feel great again. I got tested on Sat. so we'll see what the numbers are on Wednesday.
