I was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid after a routine blood test although my mom and her mom both suffer(ed) with the condition.
Treatment has changed since my mom was diagnosed as she went down the radioiodine route but I have been put on 5mg Carbimazole daily.
I have been taking this for 3 weeks now and have felt no difference with my symptoms (heart rate, breathlessness, etc)
I was just wondering if anyone else was put on a low dose at first and why the reason would be for this? And what dose did you eventually end up on permanently?
I know everyone if different but people seem to have been put on a much higher dose than 5mg and I am starting to wonder if I am ever going to get rid of the symptoms of this condition!
