    To taper T3 or not to taper T3


    Is it really necessary to taper t3? Isn't anything over 12.5 shutting you down? So even if you taper from 100mcg down to 25mcg its really no difference, your still suppressed. I heard you really don't have to taper down, any thoughts?

    Yeah to prevent rebound u should taper. Anything under 10mcg increases ur natural production. So if ur tapering down u want to go below 12.5 to help stimulate natural t3 production. If u don't ur going to have issues with rebound weight gain because ur thyroid takes a few weeks to get back to normal.

    Yeah I always taper down to 10, for a week. I have no actually research to back this up. I should of stated that earlier. That's just what I was told years ago. And I have never questioned it

    I only increase my dose then stop, don't think you have "taper down". I go 12,5-75 for 4 weeks. I would recommend doing AAS with T-3 to keep strength, I didn't my first time and lost to much strength.
