Liothyronine Sodium vs Liothyronine Hydrochloride?

Hi All

I have been taking, and feeling great on, Unipharma T3 for a few years, but ran out and couldn't get any more.

I found Sanofi Thybon Henning 20, but this is liothyronine Hydrochloride (rather than Liothyronine Sodium as in Unipharma T3). I have been taking it for several months now, but it is not making me feel okay. I don't have the energy that I had on Unipharma. And the weight that I gained when i couldn't get the Unipharma has not gone at all. I don't have the brain fog that I had before I started self medicating, but my memory is not as good as it was on Unipharma.

Can anyone recommend a different T3 that is Sodium rather than hydrochloride?

And can anyone explain why it is not working as well?

Tiromel is Liothyronine Sodium. Other T3 brands and ingredients are listed in after the NDT brands.


HI the one I buy here in France is Cynomel. Composition as on the packet is Liothyronine sodique.

Made by Sanofi - aventis in France.
