Re: Why don't all doctors prescribe Armour?

Again, Synthroid has been reported in several sources to have problems with quality control. Thus, one batch may contain more of the hormone than another. That's probably why you're experiencing varied reactions from day to day...assuming that you're taking it with water on an empty stomach and not taking anything else in for 30 to 45 min. afterward.

When I requested my Dr. to switch me to Armour, he was equally resistive. To hear someone else complain of having the same difficulty leaves me wondering whether the manufacturer doesn't pay these guys off for prescribing Syn...naw, I hope not!
