Everything was fine until I went off birth control pills
. All of a sudden I had a hard time tolerating my 137 mcg dose of synthroid
. I switched to armour thyroid, but couldn't tolerate any more than 60 mg. I felt great on just 60 mg, however my TSH shot up from 1 to almost 8. :( I then tried a synthroid/cytomel combo, but can't tolerate the cytomel (I feel like I'm on speed, even off a 1/4 of a 25 mcg dose). I have heard of people using armour AND synthroid together.
