Cytomel How to Take

Cytomel (Liothyronine) is used to treat Hypothyroidism (low blood levels of Thyroid hormone), goiter (swelling in the thyroid gland), and myxedema (the body's changes associated with prolonged low blood levels of thyroid hormone). It may also be used to aid the diagnosis of Hyperthyroidism (high levels of thyroid hormone).

Thyroid replacement therapy such as Cytomel (Liothyronine) is used when the thyroid gland does not secrete enough thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism). Thyroid hormone is necessary for maintaining the correct metabolic rate of body tissues. Cytomel (Liothyronine) works quickly to restore the normal function of tissues and organs and must be taken on a daily basis to be effective. Replacement thyroid hormone therapy usually needs to be taken for life.

Cytomel (Liothyronine) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Cytomel (Liothyronine) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Cytomel (Liothyronine) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Cytomel (Liothyronine) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Cytomel (Liothyronine), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Cytomel (Liothyronine) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Cytomel (Liothyronine) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Cytomel (Liothyronine) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Cytomel Dosage

The starting adult dose of Cytomel (Liothyronine) to treat hypothyroidism is 25 µg daily. Based on the results of laboratory tests to determine the amount of thyroid hormone in your blood, your doctor will increase your dose of Cytomel (Liothyronine) gradually, every 1 to 2 weeks until an appropriate level of thyroid hormone is available in the bloodstream. Do not change the way you take Cytomel (Liothyronine) without consulting your doctor.

The starting dose of Cytomel (Liothyronine) for children when treating hypothyroidism is 5 µg daily, which will be increased every 3 to 4 days until an appropriate response occurs.

The starting adult dose of Cytomel (Liothyronine) to treat goiter or myxedema is 5 µg daily. Again, based on blood tests, your doctor will gradually increase your dose of Cytomel (Liothyronine) every 1 to 2 weeks until an appropriate response occurs.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones given here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Cytomel (Liothyronine) is to be taken once daily, usually before breakfast. Replacement thyroid hormone therapy usually needs to be taken for life.

It is important to take Cytomel (Liothyronine) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule.

Cytomel Precautions

There may be an interaction between Cytomel (Liothyronine) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Cytomel (Liothyronine). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications that you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Cytomel Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Cytomel (Liothyronine).

Bone density: Long term use of thyroid mediations can cause bones to lose thickness. If you have an increased risk for Osteoporosis (bone thinning) or are taking medications that reduce bone thickness (e.g., Prednisone or antiseizure medications), before you start taking Cytomel (Liothyronine), discuss with your doctor how Cytomel (Liothyronine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Cytomel (Liothyronine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Diabetes: Cytomel (Liothyronine) may cause blood sugar to increase and glucose tolerance may change. People with diabetes may find it necessary to monitor their blood sugar more frequently while using Cytomel (Liothyronine).

If you have diabetes or are at risk for developing diabetes, discuss with your doctor how Cytomel (Liothyronine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Cytomel (Liothyronine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Heart disease: Starting Cytomel (Liothyronine) may cause the heart to work harder than it has been used to. This can cause symptoms of Angina or other heart disease to worsen. If you have angina or other heart disease, discuss with your doctor how Cytomel (Liothyronine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Cytomel (Liothyronine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Pregnancy: Cytomel (Liothyronine) does not cross the placenta, therefore it does not directly affect the development of an unborn baby. During pregnancy, your doctor will probably want to do blood tests to make sure the level of thyroid in the blood stream is appropriate. Cytomel (Liothyronine) is safe to use during pregnancy.

Breast-feeding: Cytomel (Liothyronine) passes into breast milk in small amounts. It is important to continue taking thyroid hormone even when you are breast-feeding. Inform your doctor if you are breast-feeding or intending to breast-feed while taking Cytomel (Liothyronine).

Seniors: Older people may be more sensitive to the effects of Cytomel (Liothyronine) and should be watchful for side effects, particularly those involving the heart.
