Re: switching from syn to armour

Thirty mgs of Armour is roughly equal to 50 mcgs of Synthroid. Your doctor may be starting you at a slightly lower dose of Armour to see how you react to the T3 it contains.

I suggest if you feel more hypo after a couple of weeks, to call and ask if you can increase by 15 - 30 mgs, so that the dose will more closely approximate the 75 mcgs of Synthroid you used to take.
