Upset stomach with Cytomel?

I was recently put on Cytomel .5 added with my Synthroid 150mcg. I am having nausea in the evening with upset stomach. Could the Cytomel be causing this?

What are your current thyroid hormone levels?  What were they when you were started on cytomel?  Please post the results, and be sure to include reference ranges, since those vary lab to lab and have to come from your own report.

Acid reflux is a symptom of hypo.  Do you eat a good lunch, or skip meals?  I get nauseous if I let myself get too hungry.

Usually after 3pm it starts, just general nausea, queasy, and some tightness in the chest, almost like acid reflux, but it is everyday and i feel ok otherwise. And upset stomach is off and on cramps with soft and loose stool. This all started a week after i started taking the cytomel

Explain the upset stomach.... pain, you feel like you're going to throw up?

Cytomel tends to give more energy; not drag you down, or make you sick.

Sometimes, eating too late in the evening (too close to bedtime) can cause this.  

What types of food are you eating? How close to bedtime do you eat?  I can't eat within 3  hours of bedtime or I have serious effects from it.......
