Hi everyone. I saw my doctor yesterday and he increased the Armour by 1/4 grain. I take Synthroid and 1/4 grain Amrour in the morning and I will be adding 1/4 Armour starting tonight.

Do the same rules apply with Armour as Synthroid--no dairy, iron, magnesium etc. for so many hours after the meds? How much time should be spaced between dairy products and Armour when taking it at night?

For those who split the dose, have you found it beneficial? Thanks for any advice and responses.

Hi,

I splits Armour Dose AM & PM. I eat my Morning pill 5.00 AM & afternoon one i eat at 12.00PM.
I eat my lunch after one hour. i try to eat dairy products after one or 2hrs.

Yes i found it help me.
Thanks softcrush, I so love the cutting edge!

Can you please explain how you dissolve them under the tongue? Is this done with both Synthroid and Armour? How long goes it take, what are the advantages, and why? Does it shorten the time you can have dairy/food etc?

It is hard for me to figure out when to take the second dose (I take other meds too). It has to be one hour before food and/or at least two hours after food right? I wanted to take it around 1:30 this afternnon but forgot about the two hours after food necessity and I ate lunch around 12:45.

I will do whatever it takes for it to help me the most! Thanks for your help.
