I thought it would be an answer to my problems. Instead I felt as though I would choke to death. I never had felt so bad before. I went back on the Synthroid and feel better. I guess I don't need that much T3.

How many mg of armour did you take?
I don't have a copy of my latest test results but a freeT3 test wasn't done then either. We were trying a change of meds to see if it helped me feel better. I tried 60mgs of armour and it wasn't a good thing. I know it has helped lots of people but I don't think it was the right choice for me.

I am seeing a new endocrinologist in December so I've decided to stay on the 125's of synthroid until then and have him run all the necessary tests. According to what I've read, he's an excellent thyroid doc.

Thanks for the response.

You are right that we all have different needs and what works well for one person may not work well at all for someone else. That is a piece of wisdom that we all lose sight of from time to time that applies to much more in life than just our thyroid meds.

Sorry the Armour didn't work for you. You would never know until you try it, though, huh? It sounds like you have a good plan, and I hope the new Endo is as smart as you say! :)
