I don't understand about the medications. Levothyroxine
is a generic T4 medication. There are several brand name levothyroxines
. What else has she taken?
Cytomel IS liothyronine; it's a brand name T3 only medication that is most often used in small dosages, along with a T4 medication. It's rarely used alone, except in extreme cases. Cytomel is fast acting and doesn't stay in the body very long, but it can cause one to have feelings of hyperthyroidism, including tiredness and/or nausea.
