I have a friend on Armour. When they got their refill, they found they had to increase their dosage and they remarked that it smelled real bad. They are now changing to “Naturethroid” which is a hypoallergenic form of natural thyroid hormone. It is sold by Jones Medical. If you would like information, contact Frank Misuraca at 800-525-8466, Ext. 1020. He was very knowledgable about their product Naturethroid and Westthroid (which is the same as Armour).
Thanx for the info. I’ll call him. I had a potency problem on a generic thyroid preparation once. Luckily, I had counts taken soon afterwards and it showed as low on my blood work. I let the pharmacy know and they changed vendors. It sounds like your friends got a bad batch, maybe from a generic producer. I don’t trust them. Make sure your doctor allows no substitutions as generics have bad potencies. Armour thyroid should have no odor at all.
