The opposite for me. I was on synthroid and cytomel for a year and absolutely nothing. I told the doctor we need to try armour now and she started me on 2 grains of armour for 5 weeks and the only change was that my hair got silky and then 2 weeks ago she upped it another grain so its been 7 weeks and nothing is happening.

Yes! I was on synthroid for 13 months, without any change, out more of, worse! only to find out my body doesn't convert the hormone, so my doc put me on armour, did well on it, skin, hair, sleep & weight got better but thought I needed to seek out another doc because had a Heck of a time getting info bout test results, to see if my #'s were right, new doc put me on synthyroid/ cytomel... I've lost half my hair, can't sleep, gained my weight back, regardless of running @ 5 miles a day and cutting carbs, etc! I'm back at my original doc, took new blood work, and after two weeks, I'm going to be sitting in his office, with or without an appt! I want off this synthyroid/ cytomel! You truly have to be your own advocate! if i would have known this when I first got diagnosed, I wouldn't feel like I'm starting all over, after almost two years
I have been on cytomel and synthroid for years. I do think i was misdiagnosed. Should have never started it. I feel horrible and look it too as i have watched my weight increase fast. Its freaking me out. I too am going off the meds starting tomorrow. Hope i see a difference. Good luck to you.
