have only been on this about 2 weeks. I was weeping and crying for no reason one day. had lab work done and my levels were too high. Cut them in half. Seems ok. Anyone having trouble sleeping taking it? I can't stay asleep. Not sure if this is why. My thyroid is extremely enlarged. Having surgery to remove. Anyone taken it with no thyroid?

No side effects, no complaints taking Armour. Started out 60 mg a day. Endo just lowered my dosage to 60/4x week, and 30/3x week. Feel good.

Comment:
I was on Synthroid and generic levothyroxine for years without noticing any positive change. Once I switched doctors and found one who prescribes Armour, I have definitely felt much, much better. It is undeniably better, and no side effects either.

Comment:
Ihave been on 60 mg of Armour Thyroid for almost one month now and some days I feel good and on other days I feel really terrible. I am still losing my hair and am wondering if I should just stop taking the meds altogether. Has anyone else had the hair loss problem while taking Armour.
