Cytomel T3 is a prescription medicine used to treat the symptoms of low thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism) and enlarged thyroid (nontoxic goiter), myxedema, and myxedema coma. Cytomel can be used alone or with other medications.
Cytomel belongs to a class of medications called thyroid foods.
Thyroid hormones are natural or synthetic preparations containing tetraiodothyronine (T4, levothyroxine) sodium or triiodothyronine (T3, liothyronine) sodium, or both. T4 and T3 are produced in the human thyroid by iodination and binding of the amino acid tyrosine. T4 contains four iodine atoms and is formed as a result of the combination of two molecules of diiodotyrosine (DIT). T3 contains three iodine atoms and is formed by the binding of one DIT molecule to one molecule of monoiodotyrosine (MIT). Both hormones are stored in the colloid of the thyroid gland as thyroglobulin.
Thyroid hormone preparations fall into two categories: (1) natural hormonal preparations derived from the thyroid gland of animals, and (2) synthetic preparations. Natural preparations include dried thyroid gland and thyroglobulin. The dehydrated thyroid is from domestic animals that are used for human consumption (beef or porcine thyroid), and thyroglobulin is from porcine thyroid. The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has standardized the total iodine content of natural preparations. Thyroid USP contains not less than (NLT) 0.17 percent and not more than (NMT) 0.23 percent iodine, and thyroglobulin contains not less than (NLT) 0.7 percent organically bound iodine. The content of iodine is only an indirect indicator of the true hormonal biological activity.
Cytomel (liothyronine sodium) tablets contain liothyronine (L-triiodothyronine or LT3), a synthetic form of natural thyroid hormone, and is available as the sodium salt.
Each white to off-white Cytomel (liothyronine sodium) round tablet contains liothyronine equivalent sodium liothyronine as follows: 5mcg debossed KPI and 115; 25 mcg scored and debossed KPI and 116; 50mcg with KPI score and drop and 117. The inactive ingredients consist of calcium sulfate, gelatin, cornstarch, stearic acid, sucrose, and talc.
Benefits of using Cytomel
During the pre-competition phase, it can help after the weight loss process is over and when you need to get in shape quickly. Cytomel is legendary for dropping those few pounds when no other conventional remedy can make you better.
Is there any long-term risk from using Cytomel? Certainly. As with any drug, there is always a risk when you change bodily function. The body usually recovers very quickly after a short course of Cytomel, which is used during the diet. However, longer use may require a longer recovery period. Some bodybuilders who are on anabolics all year round find that Cytomel is very useful for year-round use as well. He allows them to eat whatever they want during the break between taking steroids. You see, it is quite possible to gain muscle mass with Cyromel. But it’s almost impossible to build muscle with Clen, or ECA. However, prolonged use of Cytomel can lead to problems in the functioning of the thyroid gland.
When the course of admission comes to an end and it is time to stop taking Cytomel, then you should not worry about the use of post-cycle therapy. Although, you may be on post-cycle therapy to restore your natural testosterone levels, which have declined due to the use of other androgens. However, the thyroid is very resilient and should return to normal within a month. Cytomel is safe to use for beginners and experienced bodybuilders alike, while Clenbuterol and ECA just don’t do the job.
What are the possible side effects of Cytomel?
Cytomel can cause serious side effects, including:
- sleep problems
- increased sweating,
- heat intolerance,
- menstrual changes.
Possible side effects of Cytomel, such as a drug, are described on the package insert by the German pharmaceutical group Hoechst AG for their Thybon compound: “Exceeding individual compatibility limits for liothyronine or overdosing, especially if the dose of Cytomel is too high. quickly at the beginning of treatment can cause the following clinical symptoms of hyperthyroidism: palpitations, trembling, irregular heartbeat, cardiac depression, agitation, shortness of breath, excretion of sugar in the urine, excessive sweating, diarrhea, weight loss, mental disorders, etc., as well as symptoms of hypersensitivity.”
Our experience is that most of the symptoms include hand tremors, nausea, headaches, sweating, and heart palpitations. These negative side effects of Cytomel can often be reversed by temporarily reducing the daily dose. However, caution is advised when taking Cytomel because, especially at the beginning, the effect of Cytomel can be rapid and sometimes abrupt.
Athletes do not use the injectable version of Cytomel L-T3, it is commonly used as “emergency therapy for thyrotoxic coma”. Those who use this drug for several weeks will experience a decrease in muscle mass. This can be avoided or delayed by taking steroids at the same time. For the most part, since Cytomel also metabolizes protein, an athlete should eat a protein-rich diet.
