Liothyronine is a synthetic form of thyroid hormone (T3) used to treat hypothyroidism and myxedema coma. It is also used as an augmentation strategy in treating Major Depressive Disorder when used in combination with antidepressants. Liothyronine is an option for routine thyroid hormone replacement. It has a half-life of 24 hours, (although the stated biological half-life is 2.5 days). This compares to a half life of 7 days with levothyroxine. The shorter half life allows patients to find their ideal dose in much less time, 3-7 day compared to 3-7 weeks. Additionally, the shorter half life allows for adjustments which can take place over the same time interval, again with an advantage to liothyronine. It is recommended that labs be drawn weekly and the dose increased until the patients hypothyroid symptoms resolve. Uptodate recommends weekly dosage increases up to a total daily dose of 100 meg daily in treating hypothyroidism. Starting dose may start at 5-25 mcg daily and increase by 12.5-25 mcg every week.
