Thiroyd or Thyroid S?

If you've tried both brands which do you prefer and why?

If you take one of them regularly in what way has it benefitted you and how many tablets do you take each day?

2.5 grains of Thyroid S daily. I feel better than on Levo and am almost down to my pre thyroid failure weight.

I felt OK on Levo, but was still overweight and suffering from diffuse hair loss, which has now improved.

Thank you for your reply, MrsT. Am I correct in saying that you're taking the equivalent of 150mcg levo? Do you take it a.m or p.m, or do you space the dose out through the day/evening?

I've been undecided between the two products as they appear to have similar rave reviews but Thiroyd doesn't have any synthetic fillers. However, as these would be miniscule in amount I've opted to order Thyroid S.

I take one grain first thing in the morning and a grain and a quarter before lunch.

The equivalent tables are notoriously inaccurate, but I was on 150mcg Levo before I moved over.
