Started taking Armour about a month now, Just don't know if I should go up or not. Just on 1 grain. Just wondering if anyone else has done well on it?

I take levothyroxine so I can't comment on your medicine. Do you get to decide when to go up on medication? My dose changes only after having labs that indicate doing so. I don't know about Armour, but with levo, it takes about six weeks to be fully on board, so I don't have labs or changes sooner than that. Are you still having symptoms that make you feel you need more? What does your doctor say about that?

I read a book called Stop the thyroid madness, EXCELLENT book. Told me everything I needed to know about thyroid meds. I was on Levothyroxine for years and the labs showed everything was right but I still had all the weight gain, depresstion hot and cold aches in my legs. so im trying this now, feel lots better but think I should go up abit.
