pharmachologic effect

Many bodybuilders resort to using Liothyronine as a weight loss aid.
Liothyronine has a powerful fat-burning effect, increases calorie consumption and speeds up metabolism, thyroxine has an adrenaline-like effect, making the heart beat faster, and at the same time causes a feeling of excitement and anxiety, which are not very well tolerated.
However, many side effects can be eliminated by combining thyroxine and beta-blockers. Beta-blockers inhibit the receptors through which liothyronine acts on the heart, thus, they prevent the negative effect of thyroxine on the heart, normalize the rhythm and reduce the side effects of thyroxine.
Many believe that liothyronine can irreversibly suppress the function of their own thyroid gland, however, studies have shown that even large doses of the drug in 3 weeks of taking the drug reduce the secretion of their own hormones by only 20%, while after 4 weeks the secretion returned to normal.
Benefits of thyroxin: high availability and efficiency.
Disadvantages of thyroxin-liothyronine: a fairly large number of side effects, but many of them can be prevented.

The duration of the course is 4-7 weeks.
Do not stop taking thyroxine abruptly: start reducing the dose 2 weeks before the end of the cycle, continue the gradual reduction until complete withdrawal. The minimum break after the end of the course is 3-4 weeks.
If heaviness occurs in the region of the heart, it is better to add – Asparkam in addition to Metoprolol. 4-6 tablets per day, divided into 2-3 doses, after meals.
