Re: Started Amour Thyroid and

I've started with 15mgs. I'm mild hypothyroid so it probably won't take a lot to get the right dose for me. I got up to 30mgs in 2 weeks. And than after that for 6 weeks and see how I feel.

NO SIDE EFFECTS! Yeah. So it appears the Levoxyl just wasn't for me and that this is what I need to take. I'm excited. I move up to a higher dose in 2 weeks, but I think it will be fine.
