General Information on Cytomel
Cytomel is a medication used for the treatment of hypothyroidism. The generic name of Cytomel is liothyronine, which is the synthesized form of a naturally produced hormone secreted by the thyroid gland. The drug regulates metabolism by providing the body with the required hormone that is produced in insufficient quantities due to hypothyroidism. This allows the body to function normally.
Cytomel is also indicated for the treatment and prevention of goiter, a condition in which the thyroid gland becomes enlarged. It is also used for conducting medical tests on the thyroid gland. However, this medication is not indicated for treating weight problems or obesity.
Side effects of Cytomel
An allergic reaction to Cytomel has hardly ever been reported since thyroid hormones are naturally produced by the body. However, the presence of some medical conditions may increase the risk of severe side effects. These medical conditions include a particular thyroid disorder known as thyrotoxicosis, and any uncontrollable adrenal gland problem. You must also inform your doctor about the following medical conditions if you suffer from them, as they considerably increase the risk of side effects as well: angina, heart disease, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and pituitary or adrenal gland problems.
Cytomel is a pregnancy category A drug. It is not reported to have caused harm to the fetus when it is used during a pregnancy. It is not reported to harm a nursing baby either. Nevertheless, a consultation with your doctor is recommended before using any drug if you are breastfeeding or pregnant.
Cytomel is not known to cause any serious side effects. Mild side effects are known to occur when this medicine is given to children, such as temporary hair loss. This side effect is seen in adults as well, but to a smaller extent.
Dosage of Cytomel
Cytomel is available in the form of oral tablets with the following strengths- Cytomel 5mcg, Cytomel 50mcg and Cytomel 25mcg. The recommended dose of Cytomel depends on the individual evaluation by the doctor and the type of condition being treated.
For mild hypothyroidism, the recommended dose is 25mcg per day. This can be increased by 25mcg after 1 or 2 weeks. The maintenance dose is between 25mcg and 75mcg per day. For myxedema, the recommended dose is 5mcg per day, which can be increased by 5 or 10mcg per day after 1 or 2 weeks. Once the daily dose reaches 25mcg, the dose can be increased by 5 to 25mcg. The maintenance dosage is between 50 and 100mcg.
For congenital hypothyroidism, the recommended dose starts with the same dose as that for myxedema- 5mcg. However, an increase of 5mcg is made after 3-4 days. This continues until the desired results are recorded. After 1 year, a daily dose of Cytomel 50mcg may be given. After 3 years, the full adult dosage level is followed.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
