After being diagnosed with thyroid cancer in April, 2005, I was placed on Cytomel, 25 mcg. I will not be having the radioactive iodine therapy. Currently, I'm taking 50 mcg Cytomel and wondering if I should be on Synthroid. I've put on alot of weight, fluid, irritable, insomnia, depressed, just feeling terrible. I take the Cytomel at 6:30 a.m. with water and do not eat anything until midmorning--maybe a cracker. Should I be taking calcium/Tums, and if so, what time of the day? Any response would be most appreciated.
