Depends how you use it, for how long and with what. Most women I know rebound and with more then they lost and it actually shut down my thyroid to 0.01 after only 3 mos on...
I used it before for 6 weeks and this didn't happen but this time it sure did.
I can see using it to cut for a show, but if not a show or a low dose for GH, I don't see a point in using it with the risk of shutting down your thyroid, burning muscle if your diet isn't right and rebound after your cycle... it's up to you. All I ask is you read up on it yourself and don't just rely on profiles written by others. I am now treating with a dr. and going to a specialist to make sure it gets fixed the right way. It's been on heck of a battle these past few months with my weight though, trying not to get "too big" due to no thyroid function.

It is the Mexican version of Ctyomel (T3).

I am adding kelp now (just ordered it) and selenium. I will have bloodwork done again a week from friday (which is almost exactly 3 mos. post-cycle) to see where I am and I see the specialist on 1/11/06. My primary said it doesn't get any lower then it was, completely shutdown..
I knew it because I started putting on size fast (I was out of the gym 6-8 weeks too because I got real sick from mold)... My arms are about 14" right now, I just started lifting real heavy since I had the size and even with 5-6 days of cardio a week couldn't drop weight. We'll see, but I'll never touch the stuff again.

Thanks, it sucks, but that is why I'm not messing around anymore and going to see a thyroid specialist. I had a dr. all along doing bloodwork but whenever I see a problem this serious I always consult a specialist.
T3 is not worth it IMO unless you need it to compete, etc. It's just not worth the risk and the rebound most people have after they go off....
I know there are studies that say people take it 30 years and are ok in 2-3 mos... well, I only took it 3 mos and I'm not ok, so obviously that's not the case all the time.
I just want people to know the bad with the good

I agree with Jersey, be very careful and get a doc to do some blood workto rule out any predisposition for thyroid dysfunction. I have Graves Disease and believe me, too much or too little thyroid hormone is a bitch to deal with.

I was so sad to read about your problem with the thyroid meds. Hadn't seen your posts here for a while and thought something must be up.
Do whatever your doctor says, whatever it takes, to get yourself healthy again.
You're a very attractive and athletic woman, even without AAS. Don't go kill yourself just to build a body to impress jerks who don't even care about you as a real person. It's a trap that's too easy for all of us to fall into.
Thinking of you,

My boyfriend has talked me into seeing a specialist and not trying any more theories on fixing my problem and I have to say, he is right. I should have done this 2 months ago when it didn't go back a month or so after my cycle.
You are awesome, I miss you, I'm at BB4L again and a few other boards, maybe I'll see you there. Thanks for your concern, very thoughtful

Well....after all that.
I will be competeing for the first time - but I do not know if I will need the t-3
Looking at mikexxl comp. cycle - he was using 100mcg 5 days on 2 days off.
I am 28 yrs old. My mother has taken thyroid meds most of her life.
Not sure at all on what I should do. Jerzey - you have me a little scared.

How do you plan on incorporating t3 into your contest prep cycle?

I doubt I will use res. chem. t3 again... dosing is fairly inaccurate IMO, and the hormone is quite fragile in that state as well...

I am not sure when to start or stop this compound. I am currently 12-13% bf 5'10" 192 this morning. I think I will need to loose 20 pounds by april 10. My contest diet will start Jan 1.

I thought cynomel was pharmacy grade. Mex Pharnacy.
Other than that my options are UG.

not really news. there actually was a thread on HCG , Lutropin, LHR and TRH a couple of weeks ago. HCG stimulates TRH via the LHR. TRH stimulates TSH and prolactin production. The latter is the concern.
IMO HCG should never be used without an AI and a dopaminergic (cabergoline preferably).

the article was written more than a few weeks ago. i dont think i was proclaiming it as "breaking news" A thread and an article are two different things.

though will note that the "article" failed to touch on the prolactin and oestrogen issues that arise from HCG use. Kind of important issues.
and sadly the article does not even touch on the actual mechanism of action. which was delineated in 1 sentence in the post above. Its mostly fluff and banter about the incompetence of physicians (though you wont get disagreement of that issue)
