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?
