Started Cytomel today

Posted by gardenergirl on July 20, 2004, at 11:29:30

Okay, I started Cytomel today (25 micrograms) to supplement my Synthroid (50 mics) and my Nardil (45mg). I'm thinking I need to watch the caffeine for a few days until I see how this affects me. I will be doing labs again in a month.
Wish me luck!

Best of luck to you! I mentioned in a previous post that I added it for depression, and I think it really helped. My TSH, as a result, is around 0.4-0.5, and because of the possibility of osteoporosis, I am supposed to get a scan every two years, plus make sure I take 1500 mg of Calcium, some Magnesium and some Vitamin D. So far, all is well. I hope it helps, especially, for your own special goal.

 

thanks for remembering that :) (nm) Pfinstegg

Hi Pfinstegg. May I ask how many milligrams of magnesium you take? I read that calcium and magnesium should be taken in a certain ratio, but I'm certain that my intake of the two is never in the correct ratio.

Hi sb. I don't know if I've got the ratio right either, but I take 400 mg. of Magnesium Citrate and 400 international units of Vit. D. We could ask Larry Hoover on Alternatives!

Chemist once told me that Calcium should be two to one to Magnesium. I'm not sure that I get that much Magnesium, but I am a bit leery of taking more.
