When You Change From Synthroid To Armour

Can someone please tell me where a suggested dosage chart comparing Synthoid mcgs and Armour grains is found.

I was taking .125 mcg of snythroid and now I am taking Armour. I am not sure if 1 pill, a day, of 1 grain is enough. Thanks.

Re: When You Change From Synthroid To Armour

The Armour website has a conversion chart on their website, in the FAQ section. According to it, 125 mcgs of a T4 med would equal 1 1/4 grains Armour. However, individual differences in conversion and absorption makes the conversion a slightly inaccurate science. This chart assumes perfect conversion and absorption; so people with problems in those areas will probably need a bit more med.
