: : : Curious if anyone has taken both at the same time or have ever heard of it being prescribed.

: : Hi Mick,

: : I added Snythroid (apx. 25 mcg.) back in with my Armour (1 grain) over a month ago. I needed extra hormone but I couldn't tolerate any more T3 than I was already getting with the grain of Armour. Since I started out with hyperthyroid that had caused CHF I have to be very careful about getting an excess of T3. This combination isn't the best yet, may take a while longer to find the best combination. I think the best dose and combination are hard for me to find because of the thyroid antibodies that seem to attack more at times.
: : I got the idea from others who's Doctors had Rx'ed combining them. BTW..I will be switching the Snythroid to Unithroid as soon as it is available. While it may not make a big difference, I won't have to be "as" concerned about getting potency problem that have occured with all the synthetic T4's.

: : How is everything else going? Tina

: Things are going okay, cept for financial concerns. Thanks for sharing the above. BTW, what is a "grain"? The armour I'm taking is 60 MG. Is that a "grain"?

: M

Yes Mick, the (1) grain equals 60mg. I hear you on the financial concerns, here too! Tina
