Carbimazole causing swelling of thyroid?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi I'm down to 2.5 mg of carbimazole a day and looking to come off it very soon! It seems like when I take it or don't take it (not worked that out yet) my thyroid swells up!? Has anyone else had this? Trying to pin point this! My t4 in range (21) T3 slightly on low end (3.5) and TSH was still undetectable a few mths back! Due for more bloods in two weeks! Thanks smile.

      Hi Youkon is this UK results or US? I'm going down the natural route now too but I think it's wise to ease yourself into natural once your levels are dropping or in range. Get medical advice from a trained professional. 👌

    Hi Rita, that's not sounding good! Like you've reacted badly to it. Yes speak to a GP asap. ??
