Have tried synthyroid, cytomel and have had problems with these drug, brain fog, and tiredness do not go away. Armour worked the best. How do I get more of it?
28 Dec 2009
Canadian pharmacies do have the natural thyroid (Armour). My endo wrote me a prescription and I ordered it online through northwestpharmacy dot com. It's not covered by insurance and is a bit more expensive. But like many others, they synthetic stuff just never worked as well for me. Once I placed my order and faxed them my prescription, I received my order within a couple of days. I'm hoping it will get me through until it's available at my local pharmacy.

Armour thyroid is in short supply and seems to be having production difficulties. If you can not find Armour thyroid you will have no other alternative but to go back to a synthetic thyroid hormone. You are not alone in your views. See http://thyroid.about.com/od/thyroiddrugstreatments/tp/desiccated-thyroid-2009.htm
