Thyroid meds take A LOT of tinkering. I agree that strong side-effects are a sign that a medicine doesn't work well with your bodies chemistry. That said:
I've taken Synthroid (t4), Armour (T3/4 combo) & Cytomel (T3 only). The worst side-effects I've ever had on ANY medication, in my entire life
, were 7 weeks I took Synthroid. (Also know many, MANY people who swear by it)
Personally, I feel a LOT more like me
when I'm taking a thy med that has T3's IN it.
Glad your Doctor is open to letting you try Armour
I left a Dr of 4+ years who wouldn't take me off synthroid, knowing I was having HORRID side- effects,,,
