Jenifer McClain (3 years ago):

I too have hypothyroidism. I just began taking Armour thyroid medicine at 60 mg. I quickly realized my mood had changed and terrible dreams and sleeplessness. I decided to change to 30 mg of thyroid medicine., it got better, but still had some problems. I decided to change to 15 mg. of Armour thyroid medicine, and all is much better. I have been taking the african mango seed for almost a year and had no problems, until I began taking the thyroid medicine.
My only concern, is I occasionally get hypothyroidism. I take thyroid pills for a while and then I am ok and off of it. But, I do not know what caused me to go so low on my thyroid this time. Never did that before. I was also taking Fo-Ti for almost a year and stopped around the time, I got so low on the thyroid. Also, my spleen is swollen.
So, not sure if any caused my swollen spleen and my thyroid to go low, but it is making me wonder about it.

I started taking powdered African Mango which also had green tea and berry flavor in it. After three days/nights I could NOT go to sleep and my heart was racing and I started hallucinating. I must also mention that I am hypothyroid and take thyroid supplements. At first I did NOT take my supplements with the African Mango and everything seemed fine. After I took my supplements along WITH the African Mango I was okay during the daytime while being active but as soon as I lay down to sleep my heart felt it would come out of my chest. And then the hallucinating/seeing things that were not there. Very Scary!!!
