Question Armour doses above 2 grains ???

I am wondering for those that take armour and are taking more than 2 grains, did your thyoid shut down? And are you having to replace your thryoid production with Armour.

I am on 2.50 grains armour, and still waiting to feel great.

I am hoping its soon.

Hi. I don't have specific answers for you as my situation is a bit different, but in the thread "How have you helped your foggy head" there is a great post from KKKittykat about dosing and Armour. Perhaps it will help....have heard folks going to 3 grains....

Re: Armour doses above 2 grains ???

I am on 3 grains of Armour plus 75 of Levoxyl. I've read that the full replacement dose of Armour is 3-4 grains, but YMMV. My doctor has one patient on 8 grains! It really doesn't matter how much you are on--you need as much as your body needs to feel great again--and no more than that.

I hope your doctor will let you have the amount of thyroid hormones that you need--whether that be all Armour, a mixture of Armour and a T4 or Armour and Cytomel. It really is quite individualized. You should be able to tell when you are on the right dose and your labs will confirm it. Your Free T3 and Free T4 tests will also help you determine which hormone you need to tweak to get you to the best values in the range for you.

Thanks for your replies.- My doctor wants me to feel great, so whatever amount of amour I need he will give, My doctor is all about feeling good! I just never thought I would need this much armour.

One more question, how long should I wait to increase my dose of Armour???
