Armour Thyroid (thyroid USP) is a prescription thyroid medication. Hair loss appears to be a possible side effect of thyroid replacement medications, although it is not clear if Armour Thyroid causes this problem, since the prescribing information does not discuss side effects in any detail. Usually, hair loss is a temporary side effect that improves within the first few months of taking Armour Thyroid. However, it can also be a sign that you are taking too much of the drug. Taking too much Armour Thyroid causes hyperthyroidism symptoms, including hair loss.
