I read and hear in lectures that T3 can be a great augmenting agent when treating people for depression. But one of my colleagues said when he rotated in endocrinology that the particular attending he was with was quite concerned about doing something like that. Obviously you have to make sure there are no major contraindications medically to T3 augmentation, need to monitor TFTs and for s/s of hyperthyroidism. But can someone pitch in on potential longterm concerns abut augmenting someone with T3 from an internal medicine standpoint? Thanks!
