I have been on synthroid for 12 years since the total removal of my thyroid. I have weight gain, hair loss(clog drain every time I wash my hair) and low energy. Sometimes my thinking seems foggy and slow. My dose has been checked and adjusted to current levels of 112mg.
I just switched a few months ago from synthroid to armour thyroid - I had been on synthroid for about 2 years after having one thyroid removed. I do feel better and less foggy so I think the switch was a good thing for me so far. As far as weight gain issues I am hoping I'll lose some weight now but I also just quit smoking and I am dealing with the weight gain there. I would advise against taking both. Be sure to check with your physician because the dosage would be different on armour. Hope this helps.
