Armour Thyroid - allergic reactions

I was wondering if anyone here has had any type allergic reactions to Armour Thyroid? I started on Armour appox 2 months ago. First at 60 mg, then to 90 mg. About 2 weeks after upping my dosage to 90, I broke out in a rash all over my body. It is tiny little red spots that itch horribly. I have it everywhere on my body, except for my mid-section. My doc put me on Prednisone, which helped until I was out of meds, then the rash came back. She now thinks it could be an allergic reaction to the Armour. I sure hope it isn't because I feel SO MUCH better since going on Armour, except for this rash. I would have thought that if I were allergic, it would have flared up while I was on 60, rather than waiting till I upped to 90. Has anyone had this type reaction to Armour? I have been down the checklist of what could cause this rash (no change of laundry detergent, deodorants, or hairspray). The only thing I have done differently is the Armour. . . .whatta ya all think? I really want to stay on the Armour, I feel great, except the itching!

Re: Armour Thyroid - allergic reactions

Yes, you could be allergic to the fillers and/or binders in the tablets. That could happen with any medicine, actually. You aren't allergic to the active ingredients; they are the same hormones that your own gland would make if it could.

Naturethroid is the hypoallergenic version of natural dessicated thyroid. Have your doc switch you and see if it helps.

Re: Armour Thyroid - allergic reactions

I was reading your post about the allergic reaction you had to Armour. My husband had the same reaction and broke out in a rash too. I noticed someone suggested Naturethroid and wondered if you tried it and how it worked for you? My husband had to go back to Synthroid which doesn't work well.
