Switched to Armour

Aug 12, 2008 - 4 comments

My Doc wrote a 3 week script for Armour - 1 grain total and suggest if this does not kick it out, then we will discuss the nodule and surgery on 9/2.

Yeah!! Good for you....but....like Stella will say....it may take a little while to find an accurate dosage for you. Armour is a lot diff than synthroid in dosaging. Those conversion charts aren't really very accurate.
Good luck...my prayers are with you!

It is a slow process....I am up to 75mgs and feeling hypo again. I start to feel pretty good for 2 weeks after an increase and then i crash due to increase needed. LOL  I am crash point now, but have to wait to go back to dr.
Not sure yet if it is my miracle. Still hoping!

Thanks Laura!  The only thing --- other than the nodule popping up (jury still out on whether there is one but I think I feel one too and the doctor says there is one)  that worries me as I have always had normal labs throughout this whole ordeal.  Just saying my prayers and remaining hopeful that this will do the trick and will ask for US in 3wks when I go back (9/2) to check on the "nodule" since it was not there in April or June.
