I started having trouble with levothyroxine suddenly after taking it half of my life. I switched to Thyrolar 1 and absolutely loved it. then it disappeared from the market. I have been having a hard time since. I've tried the compound Armour, but it is made with levothyroxine. so no help there. just tried cytomel. lasted a month, constant headaches. hate it!!! Thyrolar will be back on the market, the question is just...when???
Thyrolar at this time is not being produced. It was an equvilant in hormone ratios to a desiccated natural thyroid med - only made from synthetics.
Getting tested with right thyroid labs FT3 - FT4 and TSH would be best here to know where the free labs are and if you fit in the majority of needing some T3 meds then medicating you with 2 synthetics ( Synthroid T4 and Cytomel T3) is used now to manage your condition.
Thanks however I am completely aware of all of this info and have tried all the medications available. they do not work for me. as of september Armour thyroid is now available and Thyrolar is being reformulated as per their website.
