I am new here but it's been many years that I am a reader of the many forums. so, without having never met any of you online,
I know some of the members by reading their posts and I am pleased to meet you here!
I have a few questions and I will try to be as specific and brief as possible, here goes:
CYTOMEL: I take Cytomel along with Wellbutrin and Lamictal for my manic-depression, anxiety disorder and slightly bi-polar
on the corners. for me, the combo is a winner and a life saver as I feel a lot better. not perfectly better, but a great improvement
since my last crisis... The questions are:
Is 25mg of Cytomel daily is harmful long term if your thyroid is normal? I have had a blood test lately to check the , euh.. ths, or something level
in my blood and my doctor said that my level is a little bit on the HIGH side, so, she wants me to reduce Cytomel to 20mg daily. As I
heard and red a lots of conflicting reports on the fact that the blood tests for thyroid are mostly not accurate and a lots of peoples goes around
still being Hypo even with a supposed normal level, I wonder because before taking Cytomel, I was sluggish, gaining weight even
with training and jogging 3 times a week and walking almost daily, tired, sleeping too much, irritable, depressed etc... you know, all those
symptoms related to a thyroid problems.I started with Wellbutrin last March, then my doctor prescribed me 5mg of Cytomel that I ramped up to 25mg slowly to BOOST the Wellbutrin
and then she prescribed me Lamictal. so, is there dangers of taking Cytomel with a normal thyroid ( IF mine is normal that is)? it
would be a shame to stop taking it because I feel SO great physivcaly and I have SO much energy etc,,,
ALSO: Can Cytomel, Wellbutrin or Lamictal can induce hearth problems, heart attack? Since a few days, I have a slight spasms-
light pain on the left breast that comes an goes and that sometime slightly irradiate to the back on the same side. its not super-painful but
I am a bit nervous about
it. maybe it's muscular or else, but, I am trying to decide if I should go to hospital see a doc about
So, Anybody here that takes any of the meds mentioned above have advices about
Cytomel and answers for my questions about
the other meds also?
Do i have reasons to be nervous? can ALL these meds can be inducing hearth problems OR one of them? what should I do?!?
Comments and answers would be very appreciated. thanks in advance!
