I have been hospitalized since Wednesday for major depression have been on Effexor for 5 years I believe now, was on over 150 mg and weened myself down to 75mg which I have been successful with for the past two years until now. Depression is so bad they want to give me shock treatment. A decision has been made after I have been in hospital for five days now to increase my does to 150mg and add cytomel in the morning. I am very paranoid about putting anything in my body so any of you that have had success or any advise would be helpful

Is it possible to feel awful after tapering down from 10mcg of Cytomel to 5mcg daily? It'll be two weeks tomorrow and I don't feel right and am lethargic. Dose was cut in half after 8 weeks because my TSH dropped drastically.
Question created 2 months 3 days ago
I have been on Cytomel 10 mcg for almost 2 months. It has done WONDERS for my depression, which I fell into after my thyroid cancer and thyroidectomy 13 years ago. I am a 53 year old woman. I have been having very painful joint pain in my fingers, especially my right ring finger. It started about 3 weeks after adding Cytomel to my meds. I do NOT want to stop Cytomel, as it has caused such a HUGE improvement in my 13 year struggle with severe Major Depression Disorder. Can anyone give me any advice? Thank you!

I'm so tired from the seizures and so tired of my neurologist blaming a brain injury and not even willing to consider this
I was 12 when I got hit by a car
Started cytomel at 37
Had my first witnessed grand mal at 39
I think it's related to the cytomel more than the brain injury

I have been taking cytomel since 2001 and started having grand mal seizures in 2010; but I was having undiagnosed petit mal for several years by the time I had my first witnessed grand mal
I find it incredibly frustrating to get my neurologist and my endocrinologist on the same page and to work together

Started cytomel two weeks ago and started itching all over. Does it go away after your body adjusts to medicine? What else can cause it?

I take cytomel with synthroid for a total thyroidectomy (noncancerous) I had hyperthyroidism. When I take cytomel daily I get inflammation symptoms. ringing ears, puffyface, swelling. I do have type 2 diabetes and take insulin daily too and on high blood pressure medication. I do not sleep for very long at night. I wake up in discomfort.

I take synthroid but the doctor says it suppresses my T3 which explains why I'm so lacking in energy. Cytomel was prescribed and suddenly I started feeling more productive but a burning sensation developed in the joints of my toe and other areas of my feet. I have not been diagnosed with gout but I'm searching for an explanation of my symptoms. In addition, I had been drinking quite abbot -- from 3-5 drinks every night. So to do my research, I stopped drinking completely for the past 6 days and also stopped the T3 medication. The awful burning pain on my feet has been reduced to 10%. My next plan is to start T3 again (without alcohol) to see if the severe burning on my feet comes back. Has anyone experienced anything similar? It's strange and my doctor doesnt know a thing about it.
