    Re: I'm new...I have a question about my t3 meds

    I was told initially to take 5 mcg of cytomel in the morning with the synthroid and then another 5 if I felt I needed it. But I got so hyper late in the day. I talked to the pharmacist and she said she only takes the afternoon dose if she is working late or is having a lot to do later in the day.

    So I stopped the second dose but yes there is a crash, most definitely. I think I might do as others do and cut the dose in half and see if I can function on 2.5 in morning and 2.5 in afternoon.

    I sure don't want a lot of energy after 9 at night! i already have trouble sleeping as it is.

    I've recently learned that it's okay to take Cytomel with food in order to slow down its release into the bloodstream. You could try taking it with a snack for that PM dose to see if that helps. It isn't advisable to eat with T4 thyroid meds, however. Only Cytomel (or other synthetic T3).
