    I started on 30 mg 5 months ago. Then after seeing my doctor, I was bumped up to 45 mg 3 days a week. I started having withdrawal symptoms the other days of the week, so my doctor bumped me to 45 mg every day. I still don't think my dose is high enough based on how I feel during the day, but it is definitely improved from 6 months ago! There are days that I don't even remember before I ...

    I am having Bio-Identical Hormonal Replacement, and this was prescribed as a part of my therapy.

    I took Synthroid for years but often continued to have symptoms. I read up on my condition and asked my doctor to switch me over. He was careful and put me on a fairly low dose before raising it as needed. I was still having some symptoms but switching to a gluten free diet helped alleviate a lot of those remaining issues. The cost went up so I contacted Forrest Pharmaceuticals. They put me i ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking Armour for over a year, and at first it worked great. But the past 4 months all of my original symptoms have returned (constipation, stubborn weight loss, weight gain, fogginess, fatigue, dry skin) I researched and found that the pharmaceutical company that makes armour has changed and apparently so has their formula. I am going to see my doctor at the end of this month for a ... Show Full Comment
