Re: What should I expect switching from synthroid to armour?
Ask what they are using as a filler at that compounding pharamcy. If they are using cellulose you might have problems. Some are using lactose, which if you don't have issues with it is a good filler.
I would consider getting some Erfa if you are going to stick with desiccated thyroid. It's a fraction of the cost of compounded and has very few fillers and no cellulose. Compounding pharms are not very closely regulated so it's not as sure a thing as a major manufacturer. Go to the Erfa Thyroid site and print out the drug info for your doc to take a look at. I use a Canadian pharmacy that charges $19 for 100 1 grain tablets (plus $7.50 S&H). Everyone who uses Erfa says it most closely resembles the old Armour of them all.
