Liothyronine is a synthetic form of thyroid hormone used to treat hypothyroidism, a condition characterized by low levels of thyroid hormone in the body. The medication functions by replacing or supplementing the thyroid hormone that the thyroid gland normally produces. Factors such as injury to the thyroid gland by radiation or medications, or surgical removal of the thyroid gland, can result in low thyroid hormone levels.

In addition to treating hypothyroidism, liothyronine can also be used to manage other types of thyroid issues such as certain types of goiters and thyroid cancer. Adequate levels of thyroid hormone are essential for maintaining good health, while children require sufficient thyroid hormone levels to grow and learn normally.

Uses and Dosage

Liothyronine is administered orally in tablet form, typically taken once daily. Follow the instructions on the prescription label, and if there are any areas of uncertainty, consult with your doctor or pharmacist. Take liothyronine as directed and do not exceed or reduce the prescribed dosage or frequency.

Initially, your doctor will likely recommend a low dose of liothyronine and gradually increase the dose, with adjustments made no more than once every 1-2 weeks.

To manage the symptoms of hypothyroidism effectively, you will likely need to take liothyronine indefinitely. Even if you feel better, continue to take the medication as prescribed and do not discontinue use without first consulting with your doctor.

Side Effects

Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention:

  • weight loss
  • nervousness
  • excessive sweating
  • sensitivity to heat
  • temporary hair loss (particularly in children during the first months of therapy)

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:

  • chest pain
  • rapid or irregular heartbeat or pulse


Prior to taking liothyronine, inform your doctor or pharmacist of any allergies you may have, including allergies to this medication or any other substances. This medication may contain inactive ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction or other complications.

Inform your doctor or pharmacist of your medical history, particularly if you have a decreased adrenal gland function, heart disease (such as chest pain, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, or heart attack), high blood pressure, diabetes, or diabetes insipidus (water diabetes).

Current evidence indicates that liothyronine may be used during pregnancy. Notify your doctor if you are pregnant, as your doctor may need to adjust your dosage.

While liothyronine can pass into breast milk, it is unlikely to cause harm to a nursing infant. Speak with your doctor before breastfeeding.
