Hi, I took the radioactive iodine Feb. 2004 and now am taking 2 grains of Armour plus 50mcgs of levoxyl.

I just bet you either need Armour or some Cytomel to go with your regimen to make your feel better. Some patients do not convert T4 to T3 very well and need some T3 added.

I felt HORRID the 7 weeks I took Synthroid: insomnia, felt like I was taking depressants, FOGheaded, etc. Winthin 2 days of starting Armour, I could see glimpses of the old me peeking through. I've been taking Cytomel the last 3 months and am doing GOOD

So I agree with Lady50. Getting some T3's could be the answer for you. Many patients feel complete (better) after adding some T3's to their medication.

good luck,
