Frequently Asked Questions
What is Armour Thyroid and how does it work?
Armour Thyroid, also known as desiccated (dried) thyroid, is a combination of hormones that are normally produced by your body to help regulate energy levels and metabolism.
This medication replaces those missing hormones in people who aren’t able to produce them naturally in their thyroid gland.
What are the uses for Armour Thyroid?
An Armour Thyroid prescription is usually given to patients who are experiencing hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone), to assist with keeping their hormone levels at a balanced level.
Occasionally, Armour Thyroid is also prescribed to patients as a treatment for goiters (enlarged thyroid glands). In some cases, this can be taken as a preventative measure to stop these glands from becoming enlarged.
Armour Thyroid can also be used in the testing process for identifying other thyroid diseases, or as part of the treatment for thyroid cancer.
How do you use Armour Thyroid?
Armour Thyroid is available as a tablet that’s taken orally.
Dosage should be determined by your doctor based on your response to testing and lab results to determine what level of hormones you are missing. Never exceed the dosage prescribed to you by your doctor.
In emergency situations, Armour Thyroid may be given intravenously when the oral route is not possible. However, this should only be done by a medical professional at a registered healthcare facility, not by a patient at home.
What are the side effects and risks of Armour Thyroid?
Before you begin your Armour Thyroid prescription, it’s important to understand the possible side effects, which include:
- Leg cramps
- Unexpected weight loss
- Chest pain
- Hand tremors
- Trouble sleeping
- Changes in appetite
Also, at large doses, there’s the possibility for serious or life-threatening levels of thyroid toxicity. Always be sure to follow the dosage instructions given to you by your doctor, and seek immediate medical attention if any of these side effects become severe.
Who should not take Armour Thyroid?
For those considering getting an Armour Thyroid prescription online, make sure to talk to your doctor first if you’ve ever experienced:
- Heart disease or angina (chest pains)
- Congestive heart failure
- Any type of diabetes (or have a family history of diabetes)
- Problems with your adrenal gland
- Coronary Artery Disease (Narrowing of the arteries in your heart due to plaque build-up)
If you’re pregnant, you might still be able to take an Armour Thyroid prescription, but the dosage may need to change.
You should also avoid taking cholestyramine (Prevalite, Questran), colestipol (Colestid) or antacids within 4 hours before or after taking Armour Thyroid, because it could affect how your body processes the medication.
