This was written in 2010, but can apply when a pharmaceutical changes a tablet, such as has happened again to Armour in 2015.
In case you are missing comments on my previous posts, there is a potential solution to the problems encountered with both the reformulated Armour by Forest Labs, and the reformulated Naturethroid by RLC.
Namely, by either crushing your tablet with a mortar and pestle, or chewing it up in little pieces, patients are starting to report far better symptom relief!! i.e., this process is probably breaking down the ridiculous coatings and cellulose and allowing your body better access to the desiccated thyroid within.
And if you just can’t stomach the pulverized pill method, add a touch of honey to the powder, and lick it all up.
Let us know how it works for you!
