Re: Medications

T4 only meds (synthetic):
Unithroid
Levoxyl
Synthroid

T3 only meds (synthetic):
Cytomel

T4/T3 meds (synthetic):
Thyrolar

T4/T3 meds (natural):
Armour

There are several others, especially outside of the US. Be aware, switching from one med to another should not be attempted without close Doctor supervision. However switching T4-only meds is generally not a big deal, and usually easy to get your Doctor to go along with.
