Discussions that mention synthroid

High Cholesterol board

and I agree with you Starsofglass, I have no thyroid because of a tumor and so have had to deal with thyroid problems for 36 years. I am doing so much better now that I found a doctor that would prescribe Armour a natural thyroid, finally after Synthroids side effects caused hair loss, arthritic problems, fluid retention etc. :rolleyes: Hope you had a nice Christmas.
Gardeninggal, my mom also have a thyroid problem. She was dx'd with Graves disease and had RAI treatment. She takes levothroid, which is synthroid. i didn't know that could have side effects. I thought it was natural. How can my mom get Armour. Is this the first med drs would use?
