> Hello everybody, the parnate has been doing great. I've had some issues with hypothermia and getting sleepy later in the day. For the hypothermia, I suggested (from a previous poster) that he add T3 (cytomel) to the mix (parnate and lithium). He agreed, no problem.
> He started me at 5 mcg for 10 days and to increase to 10 mcg if no response and if that does not work we'll go to 25 mcg.
> Of those out there with experience with T3, what was your experience? I hope all are doing well and blessings to all!

S. - We have used liothyronine (Cytomel) in some people who were partial responders to Lithium. In some cases it worked like a charm, in others seemed to do little, if anything. The literature says that there is a 50-65% response rate to Cytomel in treatment-resistant bipolar cases. Liothyronine has no mood stablizing effects of it's own, but does seem to augment the traditional mood stabilizers, in a number of cases. Hopefully someone with first hand experience will also respond. Good luck - Cam W.
