  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

 How do I apply for the Armour Thyroid patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Armour Thyroid patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Armour Thyroid. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who’ll supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you’ll typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, a pack of 100, 60 mg Armour Thyroid tablets will cost around $120.

What is Armour Thyroid?

Armour Thyroid is a prescription medication used to treat low thyroid levels (hypothyroidism), thyroid cancer, and to treat and prevent thyroid goiters.

If you have one of these conditions, your doctor may prescribe Armour Thyroid to you. It’s a hormone replacement therapy where your natural levels of thyroid hormone are topped up with thyroid hormones in the Armour Thyroid medication. This helps to boost your thyroid hormone levels, providing relief from your symptoms. Armour Thyroid comes as a tablet you swallow.

Armour Thyroid active ingredients

The active ingredient in Armour Thyroid is called desiccated natural thyroid, sometimes called thyroid extract. It’s a natural thyroid gland, taken from pigs, that has been processed and dried and turned into a powder, which is included in the Armour Thyroid tablets.

The desiccated thyroid adds the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), to your body. These work in the same way as the hormones your thyroid gland produces naturally, and they help to replace the thyroid hormones you’re missing.

Armour Thyroid side effects & Armour Thyroid drug interactions

As with all medications, Armour Thyroid can cause side effects. When these occur, the most common will likely be:

  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Problems sleeping (insomnia)
  • Weight loss
  • Anxiety

Sometimes, people that take Armour Thyroid can experience more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Heart disease and other heart problems, including cardiac arrest
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication caused by thyroid hormone toxicity
  • Hair loss in children (this can happen when children first start taking Armour Thyroid, but this usually passes, with any lost hair growing back)

Armour Thyroid can interact with other medications, which can change how Armour Thyroid and the other medications work. It can also make some side effects more likely. These medications include:

  • Insulin, or any other diabetes medications that can reduce your blood sugar levels
  • Cholestyramine and colestipol, taken to reduce your cholesterol levels
  • Any oral anticoagulants, taken to reduce your risk of blood clots
  • Any medications that contain estrogen, such as the oral contraceptive pill
  • Any medications or dietary supplements that contain iodine

Armour Thyroid warnings & precautions

Armour Thyroid isn’t suitable for everyone. Don’t take the medication if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient porcine desiccated thyroid
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Armour Thyroid
  • Are allergic to any products derived from pigs or cows
  • Have uncorrected adrenal gland problems
  • Have hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland), Armour Thyroid is for hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid gland)

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Armour Thyroid
  • Have heart disease
  • Have any problems with your adrenal or pituitary glands
  • Have any problems with your blood clotting

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
