This medicine has been a true gift to me. After having two thyroid surgeries I am finally feeling like my old self. I take 75 micrograms of Armour. Not generic. I sleep about 10 hours a night. Most Dr's seem to be afraid of this medicine . After surgery my Dr. Ordered Synthroid. I can't take that it does nothing for me.i will be seeing my Endo today and telling her I am still on Armour.

I have taken several different medications and now on Armour. I have just recently found that liothyronine and levothyroxine in all that i have taken had caused granuloma annulare. This has taken over my body and now i need to find another drug without either of these.

Comment:
I have been suffering an unusual side effect of this drug, a stiff neck with pain to the neck and head at the base of my skull. This pain starts within six to eight hours after taking it. I think the dose is too high, have to wait for another blood test for any adjustment to the drug or dosage. Hit and miss for these Docs!! Very frustrating...
