Oh my goodness! I knew there was something odd about the last prescription I received of my Armour Thyroid but had no idea of the seriousness of the issue.
Just today, a friend of mine forwarded to me some information regarding the fact that Armour Thyroid was reformulated this past spring and that people have been having all sorts of problems due to this reformulation.
I had picked up my last prescription mid-May. I purchase 30 mg tablets, and then I cut them in half. 15 mg is perfect for me to reach a normal thyroid level. When I was trying to cut my latest tablets in half, they crumbled and fell apart. Needless to say, I have quite the crumbs in this batch and many of the cuttings have been totally unusable.
Over the last couple of weeks or so I have been feeling quite physically tired and lethargic. I often want to just lie down and not do anything. Body aches and pains have increased, and I want to stop everything and rest all the time. Now…wanting to do something and getting to do it are two totally different things…but that’s another story ;-). This week I was really been wondering what was wrong with me. And I was even having thoughts that maybe I had fibromyalgia or something like that because I was hurting so much and feeling so physically tired and weak. Today, I may have just discovered a very good reason for my troubles! It could be this new Amour Thryoid formula!
If you are an Armour Thyroid user, please go to the About.com link to get more info and find out what people have been saying from their own experiences about the recent reformulation.
Time to get thyroid levels rechecked and switch to different natural thyroid supplement.
