is a natural hormone like "armour" better to use than sythetics like levoxyl (thyroxine) or synthroid?

Thyroid: It depends on the individual. Armour thyroid is different from the other two because it has T3 (liothyronine) and T4 in a 1:4 ratio. The other 2 only have t4. Your prescriber will look at your blood test and determine which medicine based on your levels are a best fit.
