T3 (triiodothyronine, lyotyronine, Cytomel) is a thyroid hormone drug that is often used to burn fat, especially in the context of anabolic steroids. T3 is produced naturally in the body during the development of the thyroid hormone T4 (thyroxine) by the thyroid gland. Oral reception of T3 allows to increase the amount of T3 in the serum to a level that will exceed its amount produced naturally, which accelerates fat burning and in some cases potentially increases the production of GH and activates anabolism.
The consequences of taking an excessive dose of T3
A high dose of T3, usually starting at about 75 μg per day, but in some cases, with about 100 μg per day, can cause tachycardia (increased heart rate) and muscle weakness and can have a catabolic effect or at least reduce anabolism. Of course, high doses of anabolic steroids often mask the last effect.
Very high levels of T3 are dangerous to the heart.
Side effects are associated with overdose and include headache, irritability, sweating, heart rhythm disturbances, increased intestinal motility and menstrual irregularities. Overdose can cause shock or provoke angina. Chronic overdose has symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Acute severe overdose can be life threatening.
