Question
I suffer from hypothyrodism (cannot get out of the bed in the moning, sleepy all day long, cannot concentrate, memory loss, make misstakes at work, fall asleep behind the wheel, etc.) I am taking thyrolar, which is a synthetic hormone. This medicine is discontinued now. The only available substitute for that is the Thyroid Armour, which is pig thyroid. Am I allowed to take it?
Answer
Yes, you are allowed to take it.
