Armour thyroid where to buy

Common Questions and Answers about Armour thyroid where to buy


Avatar f tn Please help me find Armour Thyroid to buy! Was on it and doing so good and now they say they can't get it. Is there anywhere to get it or something identical to it? I was on it and doing so great and now I'm not. I can't take that other stuff and stuff is what it is, please help!
Avatar m tn I understand all the implications, but is there any place where someone could buy Armour thyroid without a prescription? For example I've seen ads from Canada indicating you could order it by mail. Does anyone have any experience with this or have any other suggestions?
803938 tn?1403751853 Personally - they have really hurt the superior preformance Armour had for decades with the Old formula and many patients have left Armour for another desiccated thyroid medication - Nature-throid. I went to NT after a spiral downwards effect with the new formula myself. Actually, I feel the best ever since the switch. For me - them switching their methods - pushed me into finding an even better outcome for my condition.
Avatar f tn If you want to see the benefits of introducing Armour to your Synthroid a very small dose of it would be best to start with. These are hormones - yet Armour has direct T3 - so you may find within 2 weeks of starting - could tell you if your adrenals could handle it at this time. My thought - with the shortage and you already being on Synthroid - have you thought about trying Cytomel with your Synthroid dosage?
Avatar n tn hi gimel i am from india. i want to buy armour thyroid. can you tell where i can buy it?
765572 tn?1234700966 This is not a site I'm familiar with, at all. According to the site, the products are produced in the U.S and the E.U; however, they are shipped from Hong Kong; therefore, I'd be extremely leery if I were really getting what I order. Also, when I tried to look at the Armour, the page kept taking me to NatureThroid, so it looks like they don't really have Armour. I saw some good reviews and some poor ones.
Avatar f tn After pratically begging my Doctor to switch from Levothyroxin to Armour, he finally wrote a script for it. I'm saying up front that I was taking 125mcg of Levothyroxin an i'm miserable. My dad takes Armour and he said he would never go back to synthethic. My dad has absoutely no Thyroid and is currently on 2 grains of Armour. My Doctor wrote me a perscription for 2 grains, I didn't pay much attention when he handed it to me, but when I brought it to the Pharmacy I asked what it was written for.
Avatar f tn com/files/ThyroidPMD.pdf It is a good sign that your doctor was willing to switch you to Armour. Now you need to persuade him to increase your Free T3 and Free T4 levels as necessary to relieve symptoms, as described in the link. Further, if not tested for Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin, you should request those. It is important that each of those is optimal as well, for a hypothyroid patient.
Avatar f tn So one should use a combination of T4 and T3 which compensates for the inability to convert T4 to T3. Armour thyroid is desiccated thyroid and has both T3 and T4 A 1999 study published in one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that the natural hormone product, such as Armour, was far better at controlling the brain problems commonly found in hypothyroidism.
393685 tn?1425816122 -Is the pharmacy price similar to Armour? (Cash price of Armour is cheap). Only having switched to Armour three months ago, I feel cheated! Since I had hypo symptoms on just T4 for ten years, Its hard to remember what it feels like to be symptom free! I am going to give Armour a little longer since it took me a while to work up to my needed dosage. My hair has been falling out like crazy, and still a little tired. The first month (April) on Armour my hair was great !?
393685 tn?1425816122 In recent months I have been following the rumors of Armour thyroid medication being in short supply. Since I am an Armour thyroid patient I became concerned with the rumors and started conversing with other Armour patients and advocants of this medication. I know my medication dosages have not changed much from the original 60mg (1 grain) to 30 mg (1/2 grain) So far I am not having trouble getting my refills - but from what I am reading that could be an issue soon until 10/08.
Avatar m tn -) I have also read that thyroid hormones are best taken at bedtime, as a healthy thyroid gland is most active during sleep and produces mainly T4 which is then converted to T3 around 3 am in order to stimulate the adrenals in the early morning hours. It seems many patients on T4 only meds who start taking thyroid meds at bedtime feel better and report higher FTs and lower TSH, but I don't know if it's such a good idea to take T3 before going to bed?
1691030 tn?1306073124 He would not switch me to Armour. But he changed my med to Synthroid Brand Name which has way many less inactive ingrediants. and most of them are natural products not chemicals. That was on 4/15/11. And as of today 5/21/11 my joint pains, muscle spasms and run over feeling are almost gone.
Avatar m tn At that point I added thyroxine over the next year to arrive at 75 mcgs. This is where all hell broke loose. I started to have panic attacks again and my body got way too warm. My TSH levels were looking good, but I just couldn't handle it. I went back down to 50 mcgs but my TSH indicated I was on the low end. We increased again but only alternated 50 and 75 mcgs. Again I hit the wall within 3 months. This time my anxiety was much higher. After reducing to 5o mcgs again we tested in 8 weeks.
214901 tn?1227571155 It pretty much starts in medical training schools. Upcoming doctors are taught that patients with thyroid conditions only need a T4 replacement drug to control hypothyroidism. Many colleges have a connection with the research from drug companies and feel assured that what information they are given to them is the most updated information for treating hypothyroidism.
Avatar f tn The pathology was inconclusive of the left side of my thyroid where the largest goiter was, so now I am waiting the two weeks to get my results. The doc said there were "sticky" areas, where there was blood, and he said it's either cancer or residual bleeding from my FNA that was done in October. (He also removed a few lymphnodes that appear to be clear.) I have been trying to get educated on the RAI, so thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the info you guys have posted!
Avatar n tn Thanks for replying. I'm going to ask my doctor to switch me to the Armour. Also, I will try the magnesium citrate for the bloating. I do have one question. Since I do not have insurance and I am currently only paying $4 for my thyroid meds, is the Armour very expensive? Is it difficult to find? If it will help to alleviate my miserable symptoms, I'm sure it will be worth it. One question about the magnesium citrate. Does it relieve all of the bloating where I can wear my clothes again?
Avatar n tn I was still plagued with a myriad of hypothyroid symptoms and asked new PCP for bloodwork to confirm, explaining all the symptoms (too many to list here), along with the fact that I had lost 35 lbs fairly quickly while on medication), but he said he would not give me thyroid medication to lose weight -- go on a diet. Went to his associate while PCP was on vacation and he said thyroid was low and put me on medication, and symptoms began to disappear -- I felt great!
798555 tn?1292791151 i agree. The new version I hate. Can't find a thing and you cannot tell the latest comment was received etc. VERY difficult to follow. I have found if I log off and then back in or wait a little while and log in again I am able to get the "old" format which is DRAMATICALLY better. If I had a vote I would vote to not even spend a single more second on development of the "new" format. It is horrible!
Avatar f tn You can also call RLC labs and they will give you locations on where to buy your NT so you don't become frustrated. I too switched from Armour to NT and really--- it is a better stabilizer - in my opinion - for thyroid than the new formula is w/Armour. Actually looking back when I was on the old Armour - I even feel I am achieving better result now with NT than I did previously too.
Avatar m tn i did a lot of reading on hypothyroidism this past summer and i do feel strongly, based on my own opinion and intelligence, that it is important to ingest T3 as well as T4. ideally i would take Armour Thyroid, but my endo has a bad attitude about Armour, and he has been in the endocrine business for decades.
Avatar f tn I want to try Dessicated naturally derived Thyroid medication. If you can send me a link where I can buy these medicines with an Indian dr's prescription I will be grateful.
Avatar f tn Although some people report side effects with the T4 meds, as a reason to change to Armour, the best reason seems to be when you need additional T3 and your body is not converting T4 adequately. A majority of patients seem to be successful with the synthetics. When they are still suffering with symptoms it is sometimes due to inadequate dosage.
Avatar f tn Please help. I decided to stop taking my Armour thyroid simply because i didn't think it was necessary. I've learned my lesson and my doctor has put me on a higher dosage. I feel fine although i cannot lose the 30 pounds i gained. I am a health nut, hike up to 5 miles daily, and eat only fruits, nuts and vegetables (eggs and cheese occasionally). Why can i not lose this weight? I find my self esteem plummeting as i buy larger pants...
Avatar m tn It was telling my body that I needed more FT3/FT4 hormones when in actual fact I didnt. Needless to say..this tumour was removed surgically. This is where the thyroid can be a very complex gland and it does regulate every organ in your body. It can upset your liver enzymes, your heart, your kidneys...just a few to mention.
Avatar n tn The problem with thyroid replacement is everyone is different and you will probably have to try a few different meds and a lot of different strengths before your labs are where your endo wants them to be. As for having thyroid tissue left, my endo told me that no surgeon, no matter how meticulous they are, can get all the thyroid tissue - it is stuck to the nerves, etc.
190559 tn?1280615967 The current psychiatric hospital has an endocrine doc on staff who has done SOME thyroid blood tests and is trying to stablize our daughter's correct thyroid dosage, but they have commented that it would be best if an endocrine specialist direct the correct tests (which might mean more than just tests for the thyroid).
Avatar n tn OK, now lets assume all the aforementioned blood tests for thyroid function are normal, the next step you need to take is to have an EKG to check these "skipped beats" and possibly a "holter monitor" (24 hour cardiac monitor - you wear at home). If all of these tests were normal I would begin to have an increased suspicion that your symptoms are related to acid reflux, menopause (or approaching menopause) and/or anxiety.
Avatar m tn An antibodies test? Sounds to me like something else is going on in regards to your thyroid to cause these symptoms. I dont think 6 months is long enough to get a true value of the meds if you have taken numerous brands. What was your last Labs? TSH, FT3 & FT4? I am super drug sensitive and cant even take anything with codeine in it or I am walking on the moon lol (so to speak) and am just about allergic to every antibiotic there is now yet I can take Thyroxin Sodium with no problems.
Avatar m tn There is nothing you can buy OTC that will increase thyroid function. It's not unusual when starting a thyroid medication, for symptoms to get worse, before they get better. If you are starting to have symptoms, again, it's very possible that you simply need an increase in your synthroid dosage. As requested above, please post you thyroid test results and reference ranges.
