I took 80mg of methimazole daily for about 3 weeks until i had severe skin rash and muscle pain.
I stopped for about 12 days now.
Before I stopped methimazole, my T3 T4 was in range, and my TSH was detectable (0.018)
Now after 12 days, my T3 T4 is slightly above range and TSH is undetectable again:
FREE T3 6.2 pg/mL (2.0 - 4.4 pg/mL)
Free T4 2.77 ng/dL (0.82 - 1.77 ng/dL)
TSH <0.006 uIU/mL (0.450 - 4.500 uIU/mL)
My endo wants surgery, but i said no. She now pretty much leaves the treatment up to me, and prescribed me PTU. So now I have PTU and Methimazole at home
Should I try Methimazole at a much lower dosage (10mg?) or try PTU?
