How Long Does It Take for Cytomel to Leave Your System?
Does anyone know how long it takes for Cytomel to leave your system completely? In an act of desperation, I bought some Cytomel on the net and have been taking 15 mg for the past three weeks with my Synthroid. Now I'm going to my doc for new labs in 10 days. Is that enough time for the Cytomel to clear out and show my normal T3 results (as affected by the Synthroid alone)? I've read that Cytomel has a half-life of 12-24 hours, but how long to be completely gone?? I know I need an increase in my Synthroid and I don't want the doc thinking the Synthroid is doing a better job than it really is.
Thanks for your help!
