Liothyronine is given when the thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone on its own. Liothyronine treats hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone). Liothyronine is also given as part of a medical test for thyroid disorders. Liothyronine is also used together with surgery and radioactive iodine therapy in people with thyroid cancer. Liothyronine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
