my armour refill differs from the first. The pills differ in taste and how they cut when divided, and do not agree with me. Is it the fillers or what?
Pill inconsistancies-How do I find out what fillers are used in armour thyroid 30mg?
Added 2 Sep 2009:
Someome has answered that the pills are generic. The logo on the pills is Armour Thyroid. Are generic pills allowed to use the logo?
It isn't a generic you received if it has the Armour logo. Armour did reformulate their pills awhile ago. They claim that the active ingredient is still the same, but the filler, cellulose, is different. Quite a few posts can be found online with complaints from Armour Thyroid users about this new formulation, most complain that the new filler has changed absorbtion and that they are not getting as much of the active medicine into their system. Some have changed to either Westhroid, or Naturethroid, which are the generics for Armour. These are both dessicated thyroid, and not synthetic like Synthroid and Levothyroxine. Maybe with enough complaints Armour will make the old formulation available again, if not, and you are still having problems with the reformulated Armour, you may consider trying one of these generics I've listed. Wishing you the best!
