Cytomel & Androsol

Anyone have any advice on a combo cycle of Androsol and Cytomel for fat loss? I was think about doing the normal Androsol cycle of 70 sprays 2X a day, along with 50mcg Cytomel per day. The major question I have is weather I should cycle the cytomel down after the two weeks, or just stop all at once and take an ECA stack until my natural T3 comes back online?

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

I think 50mcg of cytomel per day is too much. At that
dosage the cost/benefit is not so good - especially if you
are only using androsol for an anti-catobolic effect. At
50mcg/day you will probably lose some decent LBM, but you
won’t be losing significantly more fat.

Assuming you are going to do a standard 2 week cycle of androsol, here is a better protocal:
Week 1: use 12.5mcg (1/2 a tab) 2x per day - once in the morning and once in the afternoon and 70 sprays of androsol twice per day.
Week 2: use 12.5mcg cytomel once per day first thing in the morning only, and 70 sprays of androsol 2x per day.
Week 3: Switch to an EC stack or MD6 and use 6 Tribex capsules 2x per day.

Tapering the dosage of cytomel in week 2 will allow your thryroid to mostly upregulate. Using the EC in week 3 will ensure you don't get regain any body fat while (if) your thyroid is still suppressed. Switching to the Tribex in week 3 will offset (in my experience) any downregulation from the Androsol. Good luck!
