Liothyronine Sodium

Liothyronine sodium (T3) is the commercial name for a thyroid drug produced by the Bulgarian manufacturer of sports pharmacology Cygnus. Liothyronine (triiodothyronine) is actively used as a means for losing weight, because its use is very effective in reducing the amount of fat accumulation.

Concerns about the suppression of the activity of the thyroid gland, which produces thyroxine, are not confirmed by the results of the studies. It has been established that with a three-week use of large doses of the drug, the decrease in endogenous secretion of the hormone barely reached 20%. Less than a month later, the normal functioning of the thyroid gland was restored.

What is the effect of T3

The drug works more effectively than the vast majority of other fat burners. Under his influence:

  • appetite decreases, which further contributes to weight loss;
  • heat is intensively released and the accumulation of adipose tissue is reduced;
  • the central nervous system is activated;
  • stamina and performance increase significantly. So the need for sleep is also reduced, then the ability to do much more during the day increases than before.

These Cygnus T3 effects are generating interest among fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts. Representatives of power sports disciplines use it during drying cycles, achieving greater relief of the muscles.

How to take the drug for weight loss

The course lasts four to seven weeks. Initially used in the first half of the day in two equal doses of 50 mg of thyroxine. To eliminate excessive stress on the heart, take metoprolol, 25 mg, in the morning. If after lunch the pulse rate is noticeably increased, add another 25 mg of metoprolol.

How to take the drug for weight loss

Gradually, the daily dosage of T3 from Cygnus is brought to a level of 150-300 mg. Three doses per day are made until six in the evening. In parallel, the daily dosage of metoprolol rises, it can reach 100 mg. Metoprolol is taken twice a day, and the dosage is selected so that the pulse rate does not exceed 60-70 beats per minute.

Two weeks before the completion of the course, a gradual decrease in the dosage of tyros begins.

With the manifestation of negative side effects, it is enough to reduce the dosage of the drug for weight loss.

For a more effective reduction in fat accumulation, the drug can be used in combination with clenbuterol and yohimbine (in a ratio of 5:8:1). It binds to adrenoreceptors, through which the influence of yohimbine and clenbuterol is manifested, which leads to an increase in the fat burning effect. Such a three-week course can be simplified by eliminating yohimbine from it, as the most expensive component.

During the first three days, take 5 mg of yohimbine, 25 mg of tyros and 40 mg of clenbuterol. In the next three-day cycle, the dosage of the drugs is doubled. On the seventh to ninth day, the initial dosage is taken twice a day – in the morning and in the afternoon. After that, there is a gradual decrease, reaching values in the penultimate three-day period that are half the initial, and four times less in the last one.

What side manifestations of the drug action may bebencountered

A significant effect on the body is associated with the possibility of various negative side effects. The instructions for the remedy describe in detail all the likely cases, indicating how to proceed in each case. The manifestation is not excluded:

What side manifestations of the drug action may bebencountered
  • tachycardia and hypertension. For prevention, an adrenergic blocker metoprolol is taken, the dosage of which is regulated based on the pulse rate and blood pressure level, which should not rise higher than 140/90;
  • heaviness in the region of the heart. When symptoms appear, take asparkam after meals. The potassium and magnesium contained in it will help restore the heart rhythm. Additionally, you can resort to the use of riboxin to replenish the energy of the myocardium;
  • diarrhea, to cope with which loperamide will help;
  • insomnia;
  • allergic rash;
  • increased sweating;
  • heat;
  • muscle tremor.

The normal functioning of the thyroid gland will be restored within three to four weeks.

Despite the presence of detailed instructions for the drug, before you start taking a course for weight loss, you should consult your doctor to identify any contraindications.
