    Wife is starting t3. We are wanting to know the best time to take this. We have read and she will dose it at 50mcg daily for 2-3 weeks.

    Of all the things out there, t3 is one thing I’m afraid to try.

    I got it for me actually, but she wants to give it a try. We have a body temp deal so she can monitor body temp. She has ran Phen before with good results.

    Phen is fine because it’s mainly an appetite suppressant but when you start effing with shutting down the thyroid... count me out. I hope your t3 is pharma and not UGL.

    IMO she'll better split the dose as much as she can
    not all at once before workout.


    AFAIK there are no T3 deaths or ER horror stories
    And the thyroid gland always comes back after stopping it.

    Dosing at 50 she should take 25 morning, 25 evening? I’ve read that 25 what the body produces to begin with so 50 should be a good starting point?

    It would be great if she can split that down to 12.5 mcg 4x per day.

    Got it. Can you explain why? Isn’t t3 half life like 2 days?

    She took her first 2 tans today. Can anyone tell me what she should feel or just feel really hot?

    You'll have to look up newer studies that suggest that T3 half-life is actually measured in hours, not days as once believed.

    A Study of T3 Therapy in Patients With Hypothyroidism


    Brief Summary:
    The purpose of this study is to test a new thyroid hormone preparation. The thyroid gland produces two thyroid hormones: mostly T4 and a smaller amount of T3. Thyroid hormone therapy for hypothyroidism or thyroid cancer is generally provided using levothyroxine, which is a synthetic form of T4. T4 is converted into the active hormone T3 in the circulation. Therefore, some researchers believe that T3 levels in T4-treated patients may be slightly lower than in individuals whose own thyroid gland is functioning normally. Symptoms of hypothyroidism have been suggested to occur because of this possible T3 deficiency, although this is controversial. Studies of T3, added to or substituted for T4 in traditional levothyroxine regimens, have generally not shown any benefit of T3. However, it is still possible that no benefit is seen because of the short duration of action or "half-life" of T3. This short-life makes it necessary to dose T3 twice or three times daily. Despite multiple daily doses of T3, T3 levels during its therapy tend to be troubled by peaks and troughs. These peaks can be associated with symptoms of excessive thyroid hormone levels. This study will look at TSH and thyroid hormone levels following a daily dose of a new preparation of T3 that may have longer duration of action than liothyronine. This preparation of T3 is called Thyromax® or BCT303. The investigators believe that steady levels of T3 will be seen after taking Thyromax®. The investigators believe that in patients with hypothyroidism use of Thyromax® in the correct dose will produce normal TSH levels, without producing symptoms of too much thyroid hormone. The goal of future studies is to test whether Thyromax® may be a potential treatment for hypothyroidism, by comparing it with traditional levothyroxine therapy.

    So what’s better to take, T3 or T4?

  15. Rapid heart rate. 50 mcg/d is too high. Start at 12.5 and increase at weekly intervals. She can split into two doses.

    T3

    Thanks for this. Why 3 over 4?

    At the end it's dose dependent
    split as much as she can, and don't do over 12.5 mcg at once, assuming properly dosed t3.

    IF I do it, it will be pharm only.
