    Armour and Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms
    I was recently diagnosed with RA within months of being put on Armour? I don't think that the RA symptoms are a coincidence. I think this Armour is slowly killing me? Has anyone else been diagnosed with RA after recently being put on Armour?

    According to their website, they did not take the product off of the market, they were just back ordered. As of today's message, they have made all shipments current. I filled my prescription this afternoon with no problem. Hope this helps!

    Yes, I'm positive. I got it from the pharmacy in the stock bottle (100 tablets), sealed. I had to get the 1 grain tablets and cut them in half (which they aren't scored and don't cut well) because the pharmacy wasn't able to get 1/2 grain. My dr told - 38% more...

    are you sure you're taking armour thyroid? my doctor says they have taken it off the market or there is a moratorium on it. for no good reason, of course, but the synthetic substitutes on offer are not as good and have more side effects

    Thyroid replacement medicines should never be given for weight loss unless the person has a thyroid problem that is causing the weight gain. This is just another example of why I take all of my medical care into my own hands, doing extensive research - 54% more...

    The problems you are having with Armour are due to low cortisol (adrenals). Many people that switch from a T4 only medication to a T3/T4 find problems with heart palps and being anxious because the additional T3 brings out the low adrenal issue. Few - 78% more...
