Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


Any info on pros and cons of the different medications to treat hypothyroidism would be much appreciated. From what little I know, Armour seems to be the drug I should request if given a choice.

Any benefit of Armour over Cytomel? And are there any other options between those and Synthroid?

Thanks in advance,

Heather
If you're truly hypo you need T3 and T4, Cytomel is only T3. I am on Armour after 6+ years on Synthroid and levoxyl(mostly bad years). I vote for Armour. :)IWL
