I have heard that some people can't tolerate all the T3 at once and need to split there doses. Also, resting pulse is fine at 72-74, no diarrhea, body temp is great at 98.6 most of the day. Also last labs were good. Should I try splitting?
I am extremely
sensitive to thyroid meds and Armour is the only one I can tolerate because you can split it up quite easily.
I split my 0.5 grains 7 times throughout the day for a total of 2 grains and my TSH is suppressed to 0.1 uIU/ml and falling so splitting definitely does not hurt you. My T3 and T4 free's are all well within range as well. Gotta love Armour!
So yeah go ahead and split as many times as necessary.
BTW, I take mine with food/drink. Does not matter for me at least...
