T3 - Split the dose or Not?
What are everyone's thoughts on whether the daily dose of cytomel should be split or not?
I've seen some people split it 1/2 am, 1/2 pm, and some take it all at once but there doesnt seem to be a consensus on what is preferable. Opinions on this?

50mcg right now but tapering up to 100mcg. Took it a year ago and had good results but my memory is sooooo bad, I cant remember if I split the dose or not

split it, especially when you go up. I've gone up to 125 and I always spread it out. At 50 I'd do one when I wake up and one early afternoon...(I get up early so it's half way through the day for me).

but that's me..
An example for a 20-day cycle with a max of 100mcg ED using 25mcg pills. Calculate the number of days of each period first (Notice that where the up/down period is unable to be broken into 3 exactly equal parts, the extra is put on the dose level at the last part of the period. (.5) means 1/2 a pill or 12.5mcg
UP CONST DOWN
4 days 6days 10days
5% 40% 55%

An example for a 60-day cycle with a max of 125mcg ED using 25mcg pills. Notice that where the up/down period is unable to be broken into 3 exactly equal parts, the extra is put on the dose level at the last part of the period.The answer to your every question

Liquid T3 has a half life of just around 2 hrs.So splitting the dose up as much as possible is a wise idea.When I'm at 100 mcgs,I'll split it in 4 doses.
Obviously the pill form of Cytomel is better,since pharmacists add agents to slow the absorption rate down.

T-3 has a half-life of about a day so all at once is fine. I have also read up to 2.5 days as well.

My thinking says,well if it's put in solution,it must act quick and be out of your system rapidily.Since no slowing agent was used.Sort of see what I'm getting at?.......I'd like to know for certain myself.Maybe I'll ask on one of those Q & A doc sites.

T-3 is quicker acting then T-4. This is what I have read. I think t-4 has a half-life of close to a week. Maybe that's what you read?
Either way let us know what you find out. Thanks!

Regardless of type (liquid/tablet) Mud is correct...
Since liothyronine sodium (T3) is not firmly bound to serum protein, it is readily available to body tissues. The onset of activity of liothyronine sodium is rapid, occurring within a few hours. Maximum pharmacologic response occurs within 2 or 3 days, providing early early response. The biological half-life is about 2.5 days.
