Alternatives to cynomel?

I've been buying cynomel from a Mexican supplier but it's all dried up till November I'm hearing and I am down to 42 days worth left, which won't last till November obviously. I've been looking around for alternatives to the UK but other than switching and trying cynoplus, which I am wary of suddenly trying T4, I can't seem to find a legitimate looking alternative.

I take approx, 37.5mcg of the grossman cynomel daily between two doses. It doesn't remove all the symptoms but I can function like a human being instead of mold growing on the side of a wall. My GP is of no use as they simply like to monitor my thyroid every 6 months for the past 11 years and never prescribe anything for it. Before I started self-medicating on the cynomel I would sleep between 14-20 hours a day from the fatigue, as well as having eczema all over my body and regular migraines so I really don't want to go back to that.

Could anyone, please, suggest me an alternative of similar strength to get me through until November?

Recommendations where to buy T3 via private messages please in line with posting guideline #23, thank you.

Welcome to the forum, Ioik.

I find Tiromel, Turkish T3 similar in potency to UK Liothyronine but can't say how it compares with Cynomel. If it is less potent you may need to take a little extra.


Thank you, if I get the tiromel I'll make sure to try different dosages.


I'm using tiromel....been going down hill and thought it was because I needed a break. I have just a few grossman left so I took my usual dose this morning and have had a great day compared.....I could cry I just want my meds back! I know I'm not the only one....
