For those of you on the Synthroid/Armour combo, what are you doses of each? How long did it take for you to build up your dose?

I am currently on .50 mcg of Synthroid and will increase my Armour dose tomorrow to 3/4 grain--1/2 in the am and 1/4 in the afternoon. I had been on a higher dose of Synthroid only, but new doctor lowered it to add Armour. I have been gradually increasing the Armour dose.

Thanks for your responses!
I'm on 2 1/2 grains of Armour with 50 mcg of Levoxyl right now, but I am still building up the Armour.

I was on 125 mcg of Synthroid and 17.5 of Cytomel and have been switching since January. I started with 2 grains Armour and 50 of Levoxyl. Didn't notice any problems with an abrupt (next day) switch.

I feel better on the Armour combination, but still not great. I feel the need to increase another 1/4 grain of Armour right now.
