    Switching from Synthroid to armour

    Hello all, I'm switching from Synthroid to armour and have some questions. My background is a TT last November for toxic goiter and haven't been able to adjust to Synthroid. We tried adding cytomel but I had severe palpitations and ended up in the ER. Now we are trying the armour and I really want it to work.Should I start slowly to avoid hyper symptoms? Should I split my dose? Will side effects go away as I become used to the T3 in it? Any advice to help me make the adjustment?

    My latest labs, before the switch are:
    TSH 4.65 range 0.4-4.0
    Free T4 1.4 range 0.8-1.8
    Free T3 2.6 range 2.0-3.5

    I was taking Synthroid 75 mcg with and 88 mcg every fifth day, had no energy, poor sleep, sluggish GI system and mild depression.

    Thanks for any input
