Cytomel is a synthetic form of hormone produced by the thyroid gland called triiodothyronine. You should take Cytomel as prescribed by your doctor. Treatment is usually started with a low dose of Cytomel, then increased gradually according to your response. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember on the same day. Skip that dose if you do not remember until the next day.
