what happened to the production of armour thyroid medication since

what happened to the production of armour thyroid medication since forest farma was bought out by another and renamed Allergan in 2015? The medication seems to have changed and I have had more side affects, loss of hair, headaches, sleepless nights, tiredness,etc Many complaints on line also. Is there a comparable option which is not synthetic and with similar results as the old armour that works well with Hashimotos? Is Acella np throid similar?

Hello, I am seven weeks pregnant. I have had Hashimoto s for six years. Last week my TSH was 2.94. This is very high for me. I like to be around 1.5. My T3 came back very low as well. My nurse practitioner wrote me a prescription for Armour thyroid. She says I should switch to armor immediately because it has T3. My concern is what will happen to the fetus if I switch thyroid medication? Should I leave things the way they are right now? I currently take 88 mcg of levothyroxine.

MY TSH results were 1.32 (I take 30 mg of Armour Thyroid). I am very tired in the afternoon, have lots of trouble with weight gain and have third stage lyme (that makes it very hard for me to do intense exercise). Would you suggest I increase my medication or go on something different.
