Generic Brand Of Cytomel

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I take cytomel in addition to my levothyroxine. I just recieved my next 90 day refill and to my suprise it was generic. I learned that the patent ran out and now generics can be produced. I checked the manufacture's webside (Paddock Laboratory) and found all the ingredients and all seemed to be fine, but I wanted to be double sure so I sent the company an email and here was the response:

Thank you for contacting Paddock Laboratories. The Liothyronine Sodium Tablets 5 mcg which we distribute do not contain an components derived from grains that produce glutens. Therefore, this product is gluten-free.

Best regards,

I asked specifically about the 5 mcg tablets, but on the info on the website the ingredients were all the same except the difference in the amount of liothyronine. I hope this helps. It definately helps my pocketbook!

Also here is the links off of their website:

Mylan also makes a generic liothyronine. I just got off the phone with a representative and she stated that it was gluten free.
