Re: Stay on Levoxyl or switch to Armour?
Thanks for responding RSTARRE and BOATA.
Well you are right, Levoxyl is working for me because it is the only drug I've ever known. Then again, has it worked? Since I was 20 I've suffered from panic disorder, and right now am taking Paxil for this disorder. Also, I will turn 40 this year, and I've gained 40 lbs this past year, my libido is nonexistent. My husband has talked to me about his feelings, and I basically feel bad that I am never in the mood. I know the Paxil has an impact on libido so I know it may not be all Hypothyroid related. However, before I even took Paxil I had problems in this area. I had a nurse practitioner check female hormones and I was low in Testosterone, which I received a cream prescription. This has not helped.
This past year I made a pact with myself to see if I could solve the low libido, and weight problem. I've tried Testosterone cream, I've tried another antidepressant (wellbutrin) in hopes of coming off Paxil. The wellbutrin made me more anxious after 3 weeks so I stopped taking this drug.

You hear so many good things about Armour, and how the addition of T3, T1, T2 is more like a human's thyroid. I honestly don't know what to do at this point. Maybe I should just up the dosage of Levoxyl and see if I see improvement. Do you think (based on lab results) I should not take the Armour?
