Liothyronine is T3: Liothyronine is the generic name for tri-iodothyronine, (t3). It is considered the active form of thyroid hormone, although all cells can convert T4 (the predominant product of the thyroid gland) into t3.

Don't need T3: Hi. Why are you on liothyronine (T3)? You don't need to supply that. If you take levothyroxine (T4), your body regulates conversion of T4 to T3 and you get all the T3 your body needs.

It should not be: It should not be used as a weight loss aid, but that does not mean that some people do not try to do so. It is not advised.

No: Liothyronine is a hormone. It's a bad idea to take extra hormone when your body axis is already at equilibrium. Your body will find a way to balance out the extra load and u will end up shutting down part of your thyroid gland.
