    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.125 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: My TSH is Still elevated, but my T4 is in the normal range. I don't think it is making things worse like the Synthetic Generic Levothyroxine I took back in? I don't feel much different from the NDT Armour.

    Major (for hypothyroidism)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.075 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Here's how I know it works for me: When I'm very sick from vomiting and throw up the synthroid, within 24 hours I'll notice a unbelievable fatigue. When I was on a higher dosage, I'd get a nervous feeling, especially in my stomach. When I'm on it, at this dosage, I do not notice any negative symptoms and I do not get the overbearing fatigue (except now with ALS because I can't sleep from muscle cramps or twitching at night.)
Cost: $25-49 monthly
