    I remember my hair fall was so drastic, I cut my hair short (like above the shoulders) and started using hair tonic sprays at night. It seems to be much better now (much lesser hair all over the floor). I'm hoping for faster hair growth too...

    All the best to you joannagof!

    Hi Carbimazole did not work for me either and I ended up having a total Thyroidectomy which I do not recommend. My advice keep pestering the doctors to give you a permanent solution faster.

    Good luck
