Thyroid Disorders board


I have been more than a year on synthroid at .075mg.
I was put on after having a partial thyroidectomy. This last year my hair is falling out, I have gained weight, night sweats, etc. Want to know if it is safe to switch to Armour or should I ask for my doc to add Cytomel instead? Any suggestions what I should ask for?
Thanks
I think you need to get labs done and see where you are. Is your thyroid working at all? Maybe you just need T3 or T4. Armour is the most complete supplement. See the post "Armour vs synthroid".
