Hypothyroidism symptoms may not be apparent immediately to sufferers. Hypothyroidism may lead to depression, weight gain, and tiredness over the long term.
Swallow the tablet with water ideally before breakfast (or your first meal of the day).
Your doctor will start you on a low dose of Liothyronin and then gradually increases it every 1 to 2 week.
You will likely need to continue taking this medication for the rest of your life. Even if you feel better, continue to take liothyronine and talk to your doctor before you stop taking liothyronine.
Based on the results from your blood test, your doctor will determine your starting dose. You can take anywhere from 10 to 60 micrograms daily, which can be made up in several ways.
If you miss a dose, then take it as soon as you remember. But if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the next one. Do not double up the dose to make up for a missed one.
Unless instructed by your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare professionals, you should not stop taking Liothyronine tablets. These tablets can be used for a long time or a lifetime and should not be stopped unless prescribed by a doctor.
An allergic reaction to Liothyronine, thyroid hormone, levothyroxine, any other medications, or any of the ingredients in liothyronine tablets;

Cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), chest pain (angina), or irregular heartbeat, or have ever had a heart attack; or
Surgery, including dental surgery.
Inform your doctor if you took or plan to take any prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products.
Be sure to mention any of the following medicine you take to avoid any reaction with Liothyronine:
