Does taking cytomel or Synthroid (thyroxine) to help lose weight?

Thyroid weight loss. Thyroid hormones should never be used for weight loss. They may increase your metabolic rate, but will also increase appetite. And there is a large potential for side effects. Beside making you feel nervous, jittery, sweaty, they accelerate your heart to the point of serious problems and can cause mental health problems.
