    Good for you! Good luck. Try supplements: kelp, L-tyrosine, selenium, rosemary, and others. Go slow at first. Yeah, it can be a lot of pills; you can get a guide on safe dosages by looking at the well-respected reference book Prescription for Nutriti - 29% more...

    My husband was also switched from Levo to Synthroid. It has been disasterous. He is definitely experiencing depression, highly emotional and very foggy thinking. Have you had any success with Armour?
