Armour

Anybody here on Armour Thyroid?? I am trying to make the switch but getting a lot of insomnia & fidgeting in my sleep. I was wondering... Are you supposed to take it in two divided doses or one daily dose? I ma precribed 90 twice a day and have been cut back to 90 in the am & 60 at pm. Still not sleeping.

Also how can you find a good thyroid dr? My daughter has symptoms but "normal" test results. I would like someone to work with her who would listen & be open to Armour thyroid.

Re: Armour

Hi Becca. I'm not on Armour, but I can help with your quest for a doctor. The American Assn of Clinical Endocrinologists has 9 pages of doctors in Illinois who specialize in thyroid dysfunction. I'm not certain where your city is located, so you'll have to search through them: <A HREF="http://www.aace.com/memsearch.php?action=doSrch" TARGET=_blank>http://www.aace.com/memsearch.php?action=doSrch</A>

1. Leave the City BLANK
2. Type in "IL" for the state.
3. Drop down the "Specialty" menu and select Thyroid Dysfunction.
4. Click "Search"

This is only a list of member physicians, and unfortunately not a patient recommended list. But you can use the questionnaire in our Information Archive to telephone interview potential docs in your area and see if their methodology and approach matches your needs. <A HREF="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum118/HTML/000005.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum118/HTML/000005.html</A>

Look for Meep's post of 11/02/01 regarding "Questions to ask a potential doctor."


Thyroid.About also has some useful information regarding the various thyroid drugs available and how to approach doctors who insist on using synthroid (I think page 2 of the drug page will be most helpful to you): <A HREF="http://thyroid.about.com/cs/thyroiddrugs/index_2.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://thyroid.about.com/cs/thyroiddrugs/index_2.htm</A> <A HREF="http://thyroid.about.com/cs/doctors/" TARGET=_blank>http://thyroid.about.com/cs/doctors/</A> <p>[This message has been edited by ArtfulD (edited 12-31-2001).]
