For the Consumer

Applies to thyroid desiccated: oral tablet


Oral route (Tablet)

In euthyroid patients, doses within the range of daily hormonal requirements are ineffective for weight reduction. Larger doses may produce serious or even life-threatening manifestations of toxicity, particularly when given in association with sympathomimetic amines such as those used for their anorectic effects.

Side effects requiring immediate medical attention

Along with its needed effects, thyroid desiccated (the active ingredient contained in Armour Thyroid) may cause some unwanted effects. Although not all of these side effects may occur, if they do occur they may need medical attention.

Get emergency help immediately if any of the following symptoms of overdose occur while taking thyroid desiccated:

  • Changes in appetite
  • changes in menstrual periods
  • chest pain
  • diarrhea
  • fast or irregular heartbeat
  • fever
  • hand tremors
  • headache
  • irritability
  • leg cramps
  • nervousness
  • sensitivity to heat

For Healthcare Professionals

Applies to thyroid desiccated: compounding powder, oral capsule, oral tablet


Adverse reactions other than those attributable to hyperthyroidism due to therapeutic overdose are rare. Excessive doses may result in a hypermetabolic state resembling in every respect the condition of endogenous origin.

If signs and symptoms of overdosage appear, the dosage should be reduced or therapy temporarily discontinued and may be reinstituted at a lower dosage. Normal hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis function has been restored in 6 to 8 weeks after thyroid suppression.
