Comment:
I was on Armour Thyroid but when the FDA forced the manufacturer to change the filler from potato (used for 40 years successfully) to corn, Armour no longer agreed with me. Unfortunately most if not all thyroid hormone replacement meds contain corn-based filler now. Tirosint has no fillers and I tolerate it very well. The only drawback in my opinion is the cost--nearly $100 per month.

This has worked very well for treating my graves. I started at 3 times a week and upped it to 4 times a week. My thyroid levels have been great. At first the dose was once daily but it seems to work so efficiently that everday gave me hyper symptoms. Reduction in dose worked perfectly.

I have been on synthroid tablets for twenty years - no side effects no problems. The pharmacy switched me to this (not my Dr.) and after taking it for a month I had diarrhea, headaches, muscle weakness, insomnia, brain fog, dizzy spells, leg cramps, stomach cramps joint pain, hair loss, and weight gain. It has been three weeks of this. I stopped taking it altogether and went to my doctor.

I felt better at first, but after a month, I felt disoriented and had extremely dry, sore eyes. Difficulty concentrating.

Comment:
I'm still not sure if Tirosint will work for me. At first, I felt better...more energy and lost weight. However, I developed heart palps and anxiety at 100mcg (after 5 days) and also at 88mcg (after 1 week). I also felt extremely disoriented at each dose. I am now on 75mcg (for about 1 month) and no longer have anxiety or heart palps. However, my eyes are dry and sore. An eye doc told me I hav ... Show Full Comment
