What to expect when starting Armour?

I am starting Armour tomorrow. I am excited, but nervous at the same time (if that makes any sense...). Are there any side effects to look out for? What should I be expecting when starting this type of medication?

Re: What to expect when starting Armour?


in my experience it was feeling like I had escaped from a twilight world, the one in which i had been trapped for a number of years. By day 2 my brain fog started to lift and things made sense again. After a few days I felt very tired like I had crashed but then on around day 4/5 I had so much more energy and wanted to be part of the world again and have remained like that 10 weeks later.

The only physical thing i did notice was my joint and muscle pains literally went overnight, although i did have a slight muscle twitch over my right eye for a few weeks.
my 1st lot came in a small plastic pot, and I sniffed the pills. eeek!!! they smelled like pigs poo so be warned lol
I take mine sublingually(under the tongue) they dont taste too bad.
wishing you all the very best xxx
