Liothyronine differs from the original triiodothyronine hormone naturally produced in the body by having very high oral absorption and potency alike. Liothyronine increases metabolism rate and accelerating fat loss. However, this must be used with a proper dieting regime and exercising by allowing the body to burn more fat and at a faster rate, especially when on a calorie deficit thus this should not be addressed to as a miracle substance.
It is advised that bodybuilders do not use CYTOMED 25 (Liothyronine, T3) alone, rather stack with anabolic steroids in order to avoid muscle mass loss as the compound has no direct anabolic activity.
Liothyronine (T3) Dosage
A standard cycle of CYTOMED 25can be run for 6-10 weeks, while most users report good results even after 6-8 weeks and rarely increased to 12 weeks. It is started low, increases and then again decreased towards the end to allow the body to adjust to regular thyroid hormone function without the drug. A good start is at 25mcg daily, while a dose of 50 or 75mcg daily is more than sufficient for most users. In rare cases, advanced users may increase dosages to 100mcg daily but should watch for side effects.
Women should start at 25mcg daily, while very few will see an effect increasing up to 50mcg daily.
An example for a cycle is as follows:
- Week 1-2: 25mcg daily
- Week 3-7: 37.5-75mcg daily increased by 12.5-25mcg each time
- Week 8-10: Decrease the dosage back down to 25mcg
CYTOMED 25 Side effects
At moderate doses, CYTOMED 25 (Liothyronine Sodium (T3)) is considered to be a relatively safe substance but due to CYTOMED 25 (Liothyronine Sodium (T3)) being a hormone, the possible side effects vary between users. Most common reported ones are headaches, less tolerance to heat, changes in heartbeat, increased sweating, anxiety, changes to bowel function and menstruation and difficulty sleeping, lethargy or fatigue and weakness are sometimes reported due to reduction in ATP which is why many prefer to stack it with an anabolic steroid.
At extremely high dosages such as 125mcg which should not even be reached, Chest pain, hyperthyroidism and heart failure are possible
