Liothyronine Sodium is a synthetic variant of the human body’s own thyroid hormone. Within a medical and clinical setting, Liothyronine Sodium is utilized in the treatment of hypothyroidism, which is a condition whereby an individual’s thyroid gland is not secreting the proper and normal levels of thyroid hormone for proper function. In such a case, hypothyroidism is commonly diagnosed via a blood test that analyses the serum hormone profile of thyroid hormones (T3, T4, and TSH, which is Thyroid Stimulating Hormone).

Hypothyroidism also carries with it various symptoms such as a lack of energy, lethargy, weight and fat gain, hair loss, and alterations in skin colour and texture. T3 is the primary thyroid hormone used by the body.

Cytomel is a different type of compound as it is not an Anabolic steroid, nor is it a Sarm or any other category of substance that is commonly used by bodybuilders or athletes. It is a synthetic form of a thyroid hormone called T3/Tertroxin, or triiodothyronine, which is produced naturally in the body. The synthetic form is known as Liothyronine Sodium, with T3 being the brand name.

This synthetic T3 is very similar to the original triiodothyronine hormone, but not the same. Small variations of the chemical structure have resulted in T3 having a high rate of oral absorption and an increased level of potency.

The bodybuilding and athletic world are attracted to the use of T3 as a physique and/or performance enhancing drug because of its capability to distinctly boost the body’s metabolism in the effort to metabolize body fat at a greater rate. T3 is traditionally utilized during cutting, dieting, and/or pre-contest phases of training due to the universal goal of these phases to break down body fat, though in recent years Liothyronine Sodium has gained some popularity as a useful agent during bulking and mass gaining phases of training (normally in conjunction with anabolic steroids) in order to better efficiently process nutrients and/or to keep body fat levels down during periods of higher caloric intake.
Liothyronine Sodium is commonly used with anabolic steroids due to its significant impact on the body’s metabolism. It is very important to understand that T3 is indiscriminate in its metabolism boosting properties – it will increase the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and protein all equally. Therefore, beyond a particular dose of T3, there is an increased risk of muscle loss through increased turnover of protein. Using anabolic steroids and a properly adjusted diet, this muscle loss because of T3 can be prevented because of the nitrogen-retaining and protein sparing properties of the anabolic steroids.
Liothyronine Sodium is also commonly combined with other fat loss agents to increase its overall effect, as it does work synergistically with other fat loss agents. Some of these include Ephedrine, Clenbuterol, Human Growth Hormone (HGH) as well as other fat burning agents.

T3 is used as a prescription medication to treat the common health problem of hypothyroidism which is where the thyroid gland is unable to produce enough thyroid hormone for normal functioning of the body’s metabolism.

As the metabolism is largely controlled by the thyroid hormone, hypothyroidism causes a slow metabolism and results in weight gain, fatigue and a range of other health issues.

It’s the effects on the metabolism that made T3 appealing to athletes and bodybuilders. Most of all, the potential for accelerated fat loss by boosting the metabolic rate. Only when used with a diet that’s calorie restricted, combined with a proper exercise regime will T3 have benefits for losing fat.

This should not be thought of as a miracle drug for weight loss, but rather an aid to potentially optimize the functioning of the metabolism.

Another similar hormone is T4, however T3 is considered much more powerful. It is available both as a pharmaceutical product and on the black market. It comes most commonly in tablet form, although injectable is also available however is not common or recommended. To legally obtain T3 via a pharmacy you require a prescription.

T3 is not currently listed as a prohibited substance in professional sports, but its lack of performance enhancement effects is unlikely to make this a drug that appeals to athletes for improving performance.

As you might expect, the main benefits of T3 relate to its relationship with the metabolism as a thyroid hormone. Regulation of the metabolism is what this thyroid hormone does in the body and when it is not functioning as it should, a person can have great difficulty in losing weight and often finds themself putting on weight without explanation.
This tells us that T3 provides positive benefits for promoting an efficient metabolism that is working optimally for fat loss, and this is the main reason you will choose to use this drug. Let’s look at the specific benefits of T3:

Fat Loss:
This is certainly the main and likely only benefit of interest to those using T3. Its only other purpose is in treating hypothyroidism, so if you are using it for any other reason, it will be to encourage fat loss.

By replicating the natural T3 hormone, the metabolic rate is enhanced. This does not directly lead to any noticeable weight loss though; you need to diet and exercise to take advantage of your now more efficiently functioning metabolism. The body will be able to burn more fat, and to burn it faster. If the diet is in a calorie deficit this fat burning will be noticeably quicker compared with dieting without T3.
T3 comes with great benefits for losing fat, but there’s a catch to be aware of: it has no direct anabolic activity and it’s very likely that you will also lose lean muscle while supplementing with T3. As the higher metabolic rate continues, the body needs more energy to burn, and it will not take a preference for burning fat; therefore, many users report loss of muscle.
This is a major issue for bodybuilding and athletic users who will not want to be losing muscle tissue. To avoid this problem, the majority of T3 users will want to add an anabolic steroid alongside T3 to act as a protective anabolic compound to assist with retaining muscle

Dosage Instructions

Dosage for Fat Loss

Fat loss is the only reason for using T3 outside of medical use and your dose for fat loss can either remain steady throughout a 6–12-week cycle, or gradually increase and then decrease throughout. In any case it’s wise to start low at 25mcg daily.

A dose of 50mcg to 75mcg daily is more than sufficient for most users. In rare cases, advanced users might consider increasing this to 100mcg daily, however the increased risk of more serious side effects should not be underestimated at such a dosage.

Female T3 Dosage

Females are not known to require a different dosage level of T3 than men. Women can safely use T3 at 25mcg daily and see noticeable results. With overall body mass being the only difference between men and women when it comes to T3 use, women are unlikely to want to exceed 75mcg daily as a maximum dose and few will see the benefit of raising the dosage above that level, with 50mcg daily being sufficient for most users.


T3 Administration and Timing

The maximum length of time to continually use T3 should be no longer than 10 weeks. Most users will find that even 6 to 8 weeks provides good results, while others have extended the cycle out to 10 weeks or even 12 weeks; however, this carries with it the risk of the thyroid becoming more dependent on this external source of hormone as well as serious side effects and is not recommended.

It’s wise to lower your dose for the last week so the thyroid gland has time to adjust and so you don’t suddenly drop into hypothyroidism after stopping T3. The ideal dosage for the final week is 25mcg daily. The dosage can be taken once per day and ideally is taken at a similar time each day, so you are maintaining a consistent supply of the hormone.




Using T3 on its own in a cycle is very simple. If you’re a first-time user it’s highly advisable to start at the lowest dose, then increase the dose as the cycle progresses, followed by a decrease back down to a low dose towards the end of the cycle.


This allows you to assess your reaction to T3, including side effects. By decreasing the dose for the final portion of the cycle the body can adjust back to regular thyroid hormone function without the drug. This is not critical, and most people can happily get through a cycle of T3 at their chosen higher dose for the entire duration, with an abrupt end.

However, for your first cycle it’s recommended to use this pyramid strategy. An example beginner T3 only cycle 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


This cycle can be run for a shorter period of just 8 weeks with dosages adjusted accordingly. Regardless of your daily dosage, you can take the entire dose in one administration each day as there is no need to split the dose.

If you’re an anabolic steroid user, then you stand to gain the most out of T3 as you’ll be able to combat its potential muscle loss effects by taking a powerful anabolic compound that will help retain or build muscle while you’re using T3 to burn fat.

A T3 dosage from 50mcg and above boosts the metabolic rate to a point where muscle loss is likely, and it’s here that a steroid compound included in the cycle provides excellent benefits. Inclusion of a simple testosterone steroid is often enough to provide anabolic protection when using T3, but many users will want to add more powerful anabolic agents. An example cycle is as follows:

· Cytomel (T3): 75mcg to 100mcg per day (first 8 weeks only)

· Test Enanthate: 300mg per week (12 weeks)

· Trenbolone Enanthate: 400mg per week (12 weeks)


The above cycle allows T3 to kick in for 8 weeks, while the steroids can work for the entire 12 weeks to both protect and build muscle. Note that it is assumed only advanced users will be combining steroids with T3, therefore a gradual pyramid increases and decrease of T3 is not required in these cycles as that strategy is more applicable to beginners.



While giving you medical advice is not my business, I still strongly recommend that you stay away from using T3 for fat loss and other performance purposes.



If you’re an experienced steroid user and have decided to give T3 a go, you should be aware that it obviously won’t be giving you steroid-type results or working in the same way as anabolic steroids.


If you’re adding T3 to a steroid stack, then you should be noticing some additional benefits on top of those experienced with your steroid compounds. Most of all that will involve not losing valuable muscle tissue, which is one of the great risks of using T3 at higher doses.

When it comes to T3 results, it is going to very much be a case of getting out exactly what you put in. And that means your results are going to be highly dependent on your exercise and diet program. T3 itself won’t be directly burning fat, but it will make it easier for you to burn fat as your metabolic rate will be increased.

The better your diet is, including calorie control, then the quicker and more efficient you will lose fat with T3. You will need to be working out regularly and doing plenty of cardio work to make the most of your increased metabolism as a result of T3’s activity of providing a constant source of thyroid hormone.

The amount of fat you lose on a T3 cycle will also depend on your current body condition – there is simply no standard set of results, but you can be certain of seeing a positive outcome if you put in the required effort.

When using T3 with steroids, the results take on a whole new level and depending on which compounds you include you will be seeing not only fat loss but maintaining of existing muscle rather than any muscle loss, a boost to energy and strength, and the potential for muscle gains if your workouts support that outcome.

Your results with T3 will be what you make them, but there is no doubt this drug has the certain potential to make fat burning more efficient.


Side Effects

Higher doses of T3 will increase the risk of any side effects, as well as the risk of more serious side effects that can become critically dangerous. At moderate doses this is considered a relatively safe drug, but of course it is not designed for performance enhancing purposes so the true safety and risks at performance doses are not fully known.

Because this is a hormone, it will have different effects on everyone. The most reported non-serious side effects include 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 is sometimes reported, with the potential for more extreme tiredness to occur in some people; especially if higher doses or used or if T3 is used for too long without a break in between. T3 can cause a reduction in ATP which leads to fatigue and lethargy as well as reduced muscle performance. This can be a serious issue for bodybuilders and athletes and is a main reason why most will want to use an anabolic steroid with T3.

An increase in body temperature is an expected side effect from T3, since metabolism relies on body heat (thermogenesis). In fact, if a temperature increase is not noted then it’s possible the drug isn’t working as expected. The metabolic increase that T3 causes will naturally increase the body’s core temperature, and this can be measured and compared to both before you started your cycle and then twice daily during the cycle.

The raised temperature should never be substantial and is usually around the one-degree mark. Anything higher than a consistent two degree rise in body temperature indicates your dosage should be decreased, or the drug stopped completely.

More serious side effects that are a risk when you take high doses or use T3 for long periods of time include:

Chest pain Hyperthyroidism (too much thyroid hormone) Heart failure

To avoid the risk of these side effects, never exceed a dosage of 125mcg for any more than a very short time; but ideally such a dosage should be avoided completely and is rarely even necessary in order to obtain benefits from T3. The quality of your T3 cycle in terms of diet and exercise will outweigh taking a higher dosage and associated higher risks.




T3 is designed to treat hypothyroidism, and new users can question whether using the hormone at higher doses and then stopping will cause the body to become dependent on an external source of T3, resulting in a slow down or halt of natural production of the thyroid hormone.


There is debate on how high of a risk this is or whether it’s even possible at all. Because T3 was made for medicinal purposes rather than performance enhancement, studies are only based on medical use of the drug in people with hypothyroidism who should not stop the drug suddenly. However, if you have a healthy thyroid there is no evidence that states it is dangerous to stop taking T3. In healthy individuals the thyroid gland will continue to function as normal to produce the thyroid hormone once T3 is stopped.
