Cytomel Uses, Side Effects & Warnings

Cytomel Uses, Side Effects & Warnings

Assess compliance, dose of medication administered, and method of administration prior to increasing the dose of Cytomel [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1) and Use in Specific Populations (8.4)]. Regardless of the specific reason for using Cytomel, while it will enhance the metabolic rate you will still need to diet. In order to lose body fat you must burn more calories than you consume. If you are consuming more than you burn all the Cytomel in the world won’t do anything for you. Due to Cytomel use, the rate by-which calories are burned is now enhanced due to the administration of excess T3 hormone.

  • Remember that Cytomel can be used in combination with other medications for a more powerful medication combo.
  • Symptoms of low thyroid hormone levels include tiredness, muscle aches, constipation, dry skin, weight gain, slow heartbeat, or sensitivity to cold.
  • Above 3 years, full adult dosage may be necessary (see PRECAUTIONS ; Pediatric Use).
  • The signs and symptoms of overdosage are those of hyperthyroidism [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4) and Adverse Reactions (6)].

If you need surgery, tell your surgeon you currently use this medicine. If you are switching to Cytomel from any other thyroid medicine, stop using the other medicine before you start taking this medicine. You may not be able to use Cytomel if you have an adrenal gland problem that is not controlled by treatment.

Congenital Hypothyroidism

These include urticaria, pruritus, skin rash, flushing, angioedema, various gastrointestinal symptoms (abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea), fever, arthralgia, serum sickness and wheezing. Pseudotumor cerebri and slipped capital femoral epiphysis have been reported in pediatric patients receiving thyroid replacement therapy. Overtreatment may result in craniosynostosis in infants and premature closure of the epiphyses in pediatric patients with resultant compromised adult height. Addition of thyroid hormone therapy in patients with diabetes mellitus may worsen glycemic control and result in increased antidiabetic agent or insulin requirements. Carefully monitor glycemic control after starting, changing, or discontinuing Cytomel [see Drug Interactions (7.2)].

Some medicines can make anabolics much less effective when taken at the same time. If you take any of the following medicines, take your this medicine dose 4 hours before you take the other medicine. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets.

Some have also found that the use of Cytomel can be beneficial when using Human Growth Hormone (HGH), particularly when using high doses of HGH. Some data has shown that the use of HGH in high levels may reduce natural T3 production. We cannot call such Cytomel supplementation necessary, but it does appear to have some validity. Regardless, without question the individual who uses Cytomel and HGH in a fat loss plan will lose more body fat at a far more accelerated rate.
