I was on cytomel for two years, during the first six I notice my hair texture was changing but I kept on the cytomel because I was trying to clear my rt3 problem and my doctor said the is the only way to rid myself of reverse t3. during those years my Ft3 became high and I notice that my hair got very dry and brittle and starting to break off. By the next year I did n't have much lenght left. This year in January my hair got so brittle and dry it broke off int he back it looked like my head was shaved. I stopped the cytomel in February and added snythroid(which I was on for 16 yrs) and my hair started to grow, but I got reverse t3 again and the doctor put me back on cytomel lower dose of only 25mg, prior to that I was on 81.75 for almost the two years. Once I was on cytomel again my hair statred to break off again. Now I am taking naturethroid but my hair is not growing and still breaking off I don't have much hair left it's so short I have to get a wig. I can't seem to get better again after being on cytomel for so long. I can't gain weigh, my skin is also dry. Prior to cytomel my hair and scalp were oily and my skin. My oil gland are not producing any oil. scalp dry I don't know what to do about the hair breakage. I know it has to be the cytomel because when I stopped it got better the first time, but this time around I can't seem to get things to work. I am on 2grain of naturethid and I don't feel better. I was so much better when I was on synthroid for those 16 yrs. I don't know why I ruined my life this way. What can I do?
