Hi there. I am new to this site and was interested to read people's comments with regard to the two new Liothyronine manufacturers.
I have been using Liothyronine by Mercury for some time and upon collecting my recent prescription I was given Teva.
I have a question ....
The instructions for How to Take state:
If taking a whole 20mcg in one dose, swallow whole with water.
If taking less than 20mcg in one dose you should crush it and disperse in water in the dosing cup and then use a syringe to draw out the amount of liquid corresponding to the recommended dose. Please ask for a dosing cup and syringe from your pharmacist.
Is this really necessary??
Like others on here I have noticed that the Teva brand seems stronger than Mercury and is giving me headaches.
Also, I am finding them very difficult to cut as there is no half way line and they crumle. (Hence the need for a dosing cup and syringe??)
I would be interested to know how others are getting on.
