    For those not happy with Armour, one mistake doctors make is not raising the dose fast enough to optimal levels. I am on 90mg. and feeling like my life is coming back again. My hair has been restored, and my heart palpitations are gone. I also found that my ferritin and estrogen were low, and am supplementing those.

    Been on 60 mg for almost 10 years. Couldn't be happier. Insurance won't cover it. Don't know why. Price has been rising and I think I'm getting "screwed".

My Chiropractor suggested a Dr. who specialized in natural hormones, he put me on Armour medication, bad mistake. I felt terrible, when I called him, he told me to treble the dose! My hands swelled up like baseball mitts. Most probably a really lousy Dr. I followed this with a visit to a Endrochronologist at Emo ... Show Full Comment

I've lowered my calorie intake, but still can't lose the weight. I feel extremely hot in my feet, hands, and trunk right before I go to bed. I was having some of those symptoms before and they're not going a ... Show Full Comment
