BTA people are not the ones left suffering when synthetic hormones do not work for many people. My son was taking Armourthyroid by Forest for 3 yrs successfully and suddenly he was taken off it and made ill again by a stupid NHS GP-he took 4 grains daily and was well-he was put onto 50mcg starter dose levothyroxine and eventually increased it himself meanwhile very ill and unable to wake up a.m.He has had many upper respiratory infections whilst on this synthetic hormone and throat infections plus plus. At 250mcg he could not tolerate and woke up with swelling to eye and bleeding into it one morning,he stopped thyroxine and it subsided. He never had one problem with Armourthyroid and neither have i and i am much better from wrong diagnosis of ME of several decades-except that my underactive thyroid resulted in osteoporosis for not being treated and diagnosed for so long. I met up with a 30 yr old man who couldn't work and was on 400 mcg of levothyroxine and he still is ill and not lost weight- he said 'they are coming around to the idea that it doesn't work'meaning NHS doctors. A multitude of lies and excuses were told to us about the removal of Armourthyroid and a young life has been messed up especially as it leaves anger problems re occurring making a person vulnerable.

There needs to be a NICE Study done or some Study with levothyroxine v Armour by Forest that is so free of side effects. There are a lot of lies being told about Armour by Forest the only Brand i'd trust-i've taken it since 2001 and no ill effects.

Oh and while i'm at it NHS totally ignored my severe symptoms and they rely too much on silly reference ranges being a guide only in blood tests and should be secondary to how a person is clinically but they do not know how to manage let alone diagnose as their training is so limited on the subject and my son was told that the hospital was 6 million pounds in debt so couldn't give him back his Armourthyroid.When my blood results were within reference range i was disabled and very weak., When i stepped outside of NHS and did test privately it was at 7.6 and i was severely ill-my son was at 5.0 and was very ill and couldn't keep awake still no diagnosis despite life threatening infections.So basically money is how NHS is orientated sod the patients good health we will keep the young patients ill so they suffer and keep coming back to keep us in jobs that is how the NHS works in UK.My son was even threatened to be taken off his levothyroxine if he went up past 100 mcg this is where folks are kept ill as it's a starter dose! it's laughable if it wasn't so serious that such so called intelligent people in the Medical Profession are so imbecile and lack commonsense when it comes down to good medicine it doesn't exist.

Although without an experience about this drug, I can say that possible side effects can still be their lurking around and ready to attack. Just like the Fosamax drug I've read in http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fe... .

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
