Is Armour drugs good for hashimotos?

I would like to know: what are your thoughts on the drug Armour for Hashimotos? She has given me a dose of 30mg Armour plus 25 mcg levothyroxine daily and I feel this is too low to see any effects. My last TSH was 0.29 w/ lowest preferred range of .35.

Armour is a natural product made from animal thyroid glands (usually a pig's). It replaces or provides more thyroid hormone, which is normally produced by the thyroid gland.If your last TSH is 0,29 this means that you are taking more Levo and more Armour that you actually need.
