i have been taking cytomel 5mcg..one in the morning with a synthroid .137 and one in the evening with paxil 60mg as well as yassmin birth control pill for over 5 years now and just found out it can cause problems when taken with paxil....my doctor said take one cytomel a.m. and one p.m.....never said take alone or during a certain time of taking my vitamins or other meds....i am 63 yrs old....could it have caused my depressions from this..should i stop taking cytomel? do i taper ? will it change all my thyroid numbers if i do etc?
i get super bad ovary pain many times a month...need to take alleve etc...for years i have had extreme tiredness to the point of going to bed mid afetrnoon for hours and hours...some irritability etc etc....lately i have had tingling in my wrists, knees and ankles and now take gabapentin 800mg 3 times a day at 8a.m....4p.m....11p.m....currently the dr. is taking me down to get me off paxil and going to switch my meds since it doesnt seem to be working any more...i have dropped now to 35mg and next week will be 30mg then switch to prozac at some level of withdrawl.
if i stop taking cytomel will i heal if i did hurt myself unknowing...and will i get withdrawal symptoms??? i cant afford more withdrawal symptoms since i am dropping my paxil down and its been a rocky road.
i am in shock to read about this how cytomel can hurt you....isnt there another med to take its place ?

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 4 months 1 day 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?
