I get 60mg of armyur thyroid made by ACTAVIS and 15mg made by Forest-are the ingredients the same in both pills? The pharmacy has so many of the 15mg they are probablyy trying to get rid of! I'm thinking of changing to Nature-throid it is much less expensive and by taking 4 tablets a day of the 15 mg _My head does not shake like it does on Actavis-
Armour Thyroid (thyroid tablets) is a natural product made from animal thyroid glands used to treat hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone), to treat or prevent goitre (enlarged thyroid gland), and is also given as part of a medical test for thyroid disorders.
The active ingredient in the tablets is the same even though made by different drug companies . Both tablets contain desiccated porcine thyroid powder in different quantities. This is a mixture of thyroid hormones T4 (thyroxine) & T3 (triiodothyronine). They could contain different inactive ingredients such as binders and filler.
