Comment:
I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid about 5 years ago. My doctor first put me on synthroid (several different dosages), but my pulse was racing at 2x normal. He changed me to Armour and I have had no issues since. I moved about a year ago and it took me changing doctors twice to find someone here who would prescribe it to me.

AFTER 3 YEARS OF OTHER THYROID MEDICATION, MY DOCTOR SWITCHED ME TO THIS MEDICINE, WHAT A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE! INSTANT RESULTS WITH MY MOOD, TEMPERATURE AND DRY SKIN. I FEEL LIKE I CAN THINK CLEARLY AGAIN.
