Armour Thyroid is a natural, porcine-derived thyroid hormone replacement containing both T4
and T3. Armour Thyroid Tablets, USP, contain the labeled amounts of levothyroxine (T4) and
liothyronine (T3), as established by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP).

Since Armour Thyroid is made to replace thyroid hormones, the most common side effects generally mimic an underactive or overactive thyroid (hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, respectively). Adverse reactions other than those indicative of hyperthyroidism, either initially or during the maintenance phase, are rare.

If you experience chest pain, increased pulse rate, palpitations, excessive sweating, heat intolerance, or nervousness, please consult your doctor immediately; your dose may need to be adjusted.
