It comes in tablet form and is taken once daily. Insomnia, hair loss, and a rapid heart rate are some of the possible side effects of this medicine.
 
It's important to review this medication's safety information with your healthcare provider before starting treatment with Armour Thyroid. This medicine may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions (such as diabetes, osteoporosis, or any heart problems) or if you are taking any other types of medicine (including nonprescription medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements).
