Me again! I got my prescription through the post and am sending it off this weekend so should get my Armour soon!
My doctor put a note in with it giving me dosage options. I am currently on 75mcg of thyroxine. I can either:
Take 50mcg T4 and 1/2 grain Armour in the morning and 1/2 Armour in the evening
Take 1 grain Armour in the morning and 1/2 in the evening
Any recommendations on which is less likely to make me react badly? My thinking is that it could be quite a whack of T3 to start out with so going with the thyroxine + armour option to start could be better? any thoughts?
I did the part and part for the changeover,but for 2 days felt like I had been run over by a truck..............day 3 and I felt fantastic and still feel that way.
So dont panic if the same happens to you.
best wishes hunxx
I agree that the T4 added to Armour is a great idea. It seems that for some people increasing the Armour causes a higher T3 then T4. Some cannot tolerate all that T3 from Armour. I cannot tolerate that much T3 and have added T4.

Another thing that occurred to me, if I'm on 75mcg of T4 at the moment and one grain of Armour is at least equivalent to 74mcg, or 100mcgs according to some sources, won't I be taking 125mcg to 150mcg a day? seems like quite an increase
