    I lost a stone in the first six weeks on Carbimazole, without making any changes to diet or exercise. It just fell off me. (For me, this was happy news, as I’d gained a lot of weight while overactive which I’d wrongly thought wasn’t possible!).

    But – it didn’t last. It stopped coming off, and in fact I have gained some of it back now (six months later).

      Your daily dose of Carbimazole is rather high and is mostly prescribed if you were severely hyperthyroid or if you are on a block and replace regime. In any case, your doctor is surely monitoring your thyroid hormone levels and should advise you what to do next.
