"After 6 thyroid specialists, 3 hospital admissions, a gammet of various T4 meds at dosages ranging from 25mcg-125mcg and allergic reactions and increasing debilitating hypo symptoms. Unithroid is the med that FINALLY started bringing this nightmare under control. 50mcg + 5mcg compounded clean T3 3xday."

"I have been on Unithroid for a few weeks. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's when I was 13, and now at 55, I was on Synthroid for 35+ years. I always felt horrible - irritated, had sleep issues, and couldn't focus on anything. In the few weeks I've changed meds, I feel like a new person! I wish I had asked for other options years ago! I also had gained 25+ lbs, and now I'm losing weight and hoping to be back to where I was years ago."

"When the medication was made by Johnson-Stevens, it worked very well. I’ve been on it for over 10 years. The past couple years, something changed and it stopped working. After taking it in the morning, I had a metallic taste in my mouth and made me very tired. I will report these side effects to the FDA. Had to switch to another brand made in Austria, but works very well."

"I was seeing an endocrinologist that prescribed armor thyroid. She worked with me to keep my TSH at a 1.0. She retired and started seeing another endocrinologist. He put me on Unithroid and I felt awful on it. I was constipated, bloated, carpals tunnel in my hands, and major brain fog. I convinced my Primary care to prescribe armor for me and I feel so much better."
