Where can I see pictures of Armour Thyroid pills ?

Can anyone please tell me what the grain or the mcg amount of the beige Armour Thyroid pill ? If I had a picture I could see for myself. Is there a website that lists and shows the pills by color and dosage? Armour's website does not show pictures of the pills.

No pictures. No colors. That's only for synthetic.

Armour pills are round and beige. I haven't seen them all but the ones I have seen the bigger the pill the more mcg. I take up to 3 grains and the pharmacy has never had 3 grain pills only 1 grain--which is fine with me because I don't like to cut pills and I split my pills up 3 times a day.

Thanks for your reply. I am trying to figure out if my pills are generic or Armour. If you can tell me what the markings say on your pills, I would appreciate it. THANKS!!

Re: Where can I see pictures of Armour Thyroid pills ?

All the Armours are the same color, just different sizes. And ironically, the markings of generic and genuine are quite similar. They're both stamped with a "V"; only the font of the "V" is different.
Perhaps if you can find a picture of a genuine Armour tablet - [Have you checked Armour's website, or a pharmacy site? It shouldn't be hard to find.] - you can tell if the marking on yours is identical to the real thing.
The label on my prescription bottle always tells what's inside. If it's Armour, it says so on the label. If it's generic, it has the manufacturer's name.
