Armour

Hopefully, this will be the last lab post for awhile.  My current medication is 75 mcg of Levoxyl 7x weekly, and 5 mg cytomel, 2 x daily/7 x weekly.  I recently requested to try Armour because I am feeling bone pain, and heart stress.  Dr. prescribed 60 mg. Armour.
Anyway, here are the lab results (before the Armour, which I have yet to start):
                           Range:
TSH:  0.24            (0.40-4.50)  
T4, Free:  0.9        (0.8-1.8)
T3, Free:  3.3        (2.3-4.2)
T3, Total: 82          (76-181)
T3, Reverse: 17     (11-32)
Iron:  86                (40-160)
component D:  37   (30-100)
Vit D, D3,: 64          
Calcium:  9.9          (8.6-10.4)

I can see I am on the hyper-side, and feel it, too.  Is the 60 mg of Armour a good starting range?  And of more importance, will it be an easier medication on my bones? lol.
