Is anyone out there taking Armour Thyroid? I was on 250 mcg's of Levothyroxine and while my TSH on paper was fine at 0.7 I still was having some issues with body aches and tiredness so my doctor thought my body wasn't converting the medicine to T3 so he changed me to 180 mcg's of Armour Thyroid. I've been on it almost 3 weeks now and I'm regressing in a bad way! I'm lethargic, depressed, and my body aches like you wouldn't believe. I also wake up about 6 times a night in the 6 hours of sleep I get. I feel like my body won't get into the deep sleep at all. I'm not sure if this is a result of the new medication or if one has worn off and the other has kicked in? I feel horrible! I've read some good things about Cytomel so I'm going to ask my doctor about it when I see him in mid-December.
