When I first started on the Armour I felt like I was reacting a little bit but attributed it to the fact that it's dessicated porcine thyroid and I've wondered about having a sensitivity to pork - I gave up my beloved pork rinds for that reason some time ago. That feeling went away, though. Sometimes I'll still have a little bit of achiness in my glands and the lymph nodes along my neck and just under and behind my ears, though. Seems to correlate with my dose but isn't consistent and doesn't seem to be causing any real damage that I know of.
I've also noticed that I feel the effect of the Armour MUCH MORE by taking it sublingually. I'm talking a big difference, here! Sometimes I just let it dissolve whole and sometimes I'll chew it just a little and then let the tiny pieces dissolve. Glad I read that people have had good results with this method.

I think my prescribing doctor is inside. He just handed me a big container and told me to take 1 grain per day. I followed STTM instead, and when I was almost out, called for a refill and they just mailed it to me. !
