Ive been taking 30mg of Carbimazole (10mg x 3 times a day) since 4 weeks ago where my T4 level was 94 with all symptoms of hyperthyroid. I had another blood test yesterday and it shown as 14 and my doctor told me to take only 5mg a day now. Is it possible? And my right eye is bigger than left eye. Should I have second opinion or blood test from another doctor?

    Hi - that's good news isn't it? 

    Stop worrying and reduce the dosage - why would you want to be on more drugs than necessary ?  Besides docs will not prescribe carbamazole longer than need be because it can on very rare occassions, give very bad side effects. They will take you off it or reduce it a .s.a.p. Which sounds like now - so congrats you are improving
