There’s no known mortal side effect of Cytomel. Most reported side effect is the loss of muscle tissue. Many bodybuilders use Cytomel in their strict calorie diets because it allows low consumption of calories but after diet, they again use steroids for gaining muscle mass back. Also temporary side effects like headaches, excess sweating and insomnia are common. Because of low body fat in body, many women reported that they have problems in their menstrual cycles.

Many bodybuilders and athletes start Cytomel 6 weeks before a competition. 6-8 week period is enough for increasing the level of T3 into effective peak in blood. 25 mg per day is the most common form for novices and it can be increased up to 100 mg per day. In some individual situations, doctors can prescribe 150 mg for men.
