Is this suppose to be better than synthroid well side effects wise ? Went to my Endo Again and he took me off of Armour b/c of my asthma : ( and he gave me levoxyl 50 mcg he said for me to take half of it for a month .He said He wanted to start me off slow b/c of the problems I ran into with synthroid.Has anyone had luck with Levoxyl? Take Care.....
I have only heard of a very few who have had problems with Levoxyl, I think its the binders and fillers in Synthroid that a lot of people have trouble with.
Why did your dr want you off Armour because of your Asthma? Does it cause a problem?

Yes, Everytime I would take my dosage of Armour it would trigger a small Asthma attack.I mean nothing to bad my inhalers couldnt stop , but he felt it was in my best interest to try something else.
I just dont have a clue as to why it was bothering my asthma so, which really sucked b/c I loved the stuff. I actually felt alive.
Oh well I guess just one of those freakish events.
Take Care~~~~~~ : )
