I would like to know who is happiest with their meds. I have been on synthroid for 10 years now. I don't think my TSH and symptoms are correct. For those of you on Armour, what do you think about armour and weight gain? My TSH was high back in January, so they cut back on my meds, so now I have gained 5 pounds!! That's the most weight I have ever gained in a short amount of time. It seems when my TSH is on the high side, I can keep my weight stabile but it is still almost impossible to loose more than a pound or two in 8 weeks time. I am worried because now I am almost 200 pounds at 5'3", my bp is going up and so are my lipids. I don't think synthroid is doing its job. I follow a great diet and do get some exercise. Any thoughts on armour working better than synthroid? Thanks.

I use Armour and I feel sooooooooooooooooooooo much better than when I was taking levoxyl...could not tollerate synthroid or others. To me it has been a blessing. I am very sensitive to meds so i have to be careful what meds to take.
Hope this helps.

Synthoid works for me.
