Liothyronine Sodium (T3,T4) is an post cycle steroid, this drug is also known as Liothyronine Sodium (T3).
Liothyronine Sodium (T3) is not an anabolic/androgenic steroid but a thyroid hormone. As a substance it contains synthetically manufactured liothyronine sodium which resembles the natural thyroid hormone tricodide-thyronine. The thyroid of a healthy person usually produces two hormones, the better known L-thyroxine and the aforementioned L-triiodine-thyronine. Since Liothyronine Sodium (T3) is the synthetic equivalent of the latter hormone, it causes the same processes in the body as if the thyroid were to produce more of the hormone. It is interesting to note that L-T3 is clearly the stronger and more effective of these two hormones. This makes Citomed more effective than the commercially available L-T4 compounds such as L-thyroxine or Synthroid.
One should take caution if considering using this drug. Liothyronine Sodium (T3) comes with an extensive list of warnings and precautions which are not to be ignored. Side effects include, but are not limited to, heart palpitations, agitation, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, headaches, and psychic/metabolic disorders. It is a powerful hormone, and one that could potentially alter the normal functioning of the body if misused. When administering Liothyronine Sodium (T3), one must remember to increase the dosage slowly. Generally one 25 mcg tablet is taken on the first day, and the dosage is thereafter increased by one tablet every three of four days for a maximum dosage of 100 mcg. This will help the body adjust to the increased thyroid hormone, hopefully avoiding any sudden “shock” to the system. The daily dose is also to be split evenly throughout the day, in an effort to keep blood levels steadier. Women are more sensitive to the side effects of Liothyronine Sodium (T3) than men, and usually opt to take no more than 50 mcg daily.
