Cytomel is used to treat the implications of a mild to severely reduced thyroid function, to reduce an enlarged thyroid gland (“goitre”) and for a T3-suppression test to differentiate hypothyroidism from euthyroidism.

Ongoing stability tests have shown that Cytomel should be stored cool (2 – 8 °C). Patients can store Cytomel outside the fridge for a maximum of 1 month (if under 25 °C).

Cytomel is available in tablets with 5, 12.5 and 25 microgram liothyronine.
