I was diagnosed 5 months ago with an overactive thyroid and I have been taking carbimazole go 5 months. My T3 and T4 are in normal range now and have been for last 2 months and take just 2.5mg carbimazole a day now. TSH is 0.01. But for the last 6 weeks my hair is shedding and have lost 30% of hair. I don't know why I am losing my hair NOW! Hair loss is usually when you are really ill but I'm not now and haven't been for a long time. I know carbimazole states side effect alopecia but I'm shedding all over, no bald spot. My question is to anyone is if it is my tablets why has it taken so long for me to get side effect? Usually you get side effects in first month.
