I took 100mg of Synthroid from 1993-2006, and had many unpleasant side effects-profuse sweating, hair loss, itchy eyes,extreme moodiness,joint pain, weight gain etc. My doctor only lowered the dose when I insisted and was without thyroid medication from 2006-2008.

I just started taking Armour. I had all the classic symptoms of Hypothyroidism. Also, I've developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome due to hypothyroidism. Hopefully, this drug will help everything and make me feel 1000 times better than I have been feeling. Extra bonus is that this medication is cheap!!!! Only cost me $1.54 with insurance for 30 day supply.

Comment:
Took 3 year and 5 Drs. to finally get diagnosed hypothyroid. After 2 years of increasing doses of many synthetic drugs but no relief, switched to Armour. Even my hubby noticed a huge difference. The generic is discontinued!!! I is anyone else going crazy trying to refill? Should we be worried that the brand will discontinue as well?
