    Armour vs Westhroid

    I thought they were the same. There is 38mcg T4 and 9mcg T3 in both Armour and Westhroid. So why when my Dr switched me over to Westhroid am I having palps/nervousness? I know 60mg of Armour is equal to 65mg Westhroid and that's what the doc gave me. I'm cutting them in half (am/pm) Is it common to have these side effects?

    You might be having better absorption with the new brand.
    If you can wait it out, give it a few weeks to see whether your body gets used to it. Otherwise, you'll have to find the brand that works better for you.

    Thanks! That is exactly the info I needed. I can tell 1.5 hours after taking it that I'm "racing" But it wears off. Will try my best.

    You were right! I feel much better after a few days on it. Thank you again.
