Anti-thyroid medications [propylthiouracil (PTU) and methimazole (also known as Tapazole)] can gradually reduce symptoms of hyperthyroidism, and, even in some cases, permanently clear up the problem.
However, anti-thyroid medications, although uncommon, do have a breadth of unwanted side effects.The side effects may include a rash, itching, hair loss, fever, nausea, joint pain, headaches, and more. One of the most severe side effects, which is more common with propylthiouracil, is liver damage.
Which anti-thyroid medication did you try?
Did you have any success with an anti-thyroid medication? Did it improve symptoms? Did it provide permanent relief?
Did you ever experience any side effects with an anti-thyroid medication? If so, which side effects?
