 2   This generic drug does not do what it is supposed to. Had been on Cytomel for 2 years at same dose, blood pressure was great, not tired or exhausted by noon going good. Insurance changed and was forced to get generic- now blood pressure is not where it is normally(doc wants to see if I need blood pressure medication) and exhausted by noon. I have tried taking an extra one every other day not helping. Can't wait till I can go back on named brand Cytomel. F 62 2 months

 1  hypothyroid, on Armour since 13. Asthma went wild, overheated at 72 degrees, full body sweats, added fatigue & so dizzy and off-balance my ENT ordered a brain MRI scan and started talking about surgery. Glad to find this site! Added it to my usual 3gr of Armour thyroid, only thing that has worked. Lost nearly three years of my life trying five synthetics for a doctor that did not believe in Armour. Finally got a new doctor, back on Armour over 10 yrs. Better but not perfect. This stuff Totally messed up my body thermostat in July, the very worst time to do this. F 72 1 months

 1  Hypothyroid, Unable to lose weight When walking or even standing still, couldn't breathe. Terrible Sweats. Pounding headaches. My endo put me on T3 to suppliment my T4. There was a mix up between the doctor and pharmacy and I was given 15mg instead of 5. Was absolutely unbearable! Felt like a wrecking ball was hitting me in the side of the head. Soaked the bed sheets and clothes constantly. Face constantly red. Got back down to right Rx of 5mg. Things got better (only a mild headache vs. pounding one) but still couldn't breathe very well. Had to since stop it and just take my chances. Would not recommend. :( F 39 1 months

LIOTHYRONINE SODIUM  (LIOTHYRONINE SODIUM):  Liothyronine is used to treat an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). It replaces or provides more thyroid hormone, which is normally made by the thyroid gland. Liothyronine is a man-made form of thyroid hormone. Low thyroid hormone levels can occur naturally or when the thyroid gland is injured by radiation/medications or removed by surgery. Having enough thyroid hormone helps you stay healthy. For children, having enough thyroid hormone helps them grow and learn normally. This medication is also used to treat other types of thyroid problems (such as certain types of goiters, thyroid cancer). It can also be used to test for certain types of thyroid disease. This medication should not be used to treat infertility unless it is caused by low thyroid hormone levels.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
