Hi everyone, just after a little advice from those that are already taking Carbimazole.
Recent tests I had showed that my thyroid levels were high (almost 30 is what doc said). I am waiting to see the endocrine specialist on 14th July but in the mean time my doc wants to start me on Carbimazole 5mg tablets. I have asked to have another blood test done before starting the meds as I am very nervous about starting medication.
Also, I went hyperthyroid 7 years ago and after about 3/4 months it settled by itself.
My doctor just warned me that Carbimazole effects your immune system and can make you more susceptible to ill health. I'm thinking this must be bad because GP's hardly ever warn you of side effects in my experience, they always say there aren't any to worry about! But I am very worried about this. I'm a single parent to 3 kids, have a lot of stress and can't afford to be ill all the time. The hyperthyroidism doesn't make me feel ill apart from palpitations but that has stopped happening. Also, I'm afraid that I won't be able to control weight gain if this medication effects my metabolism.
Any advice would be much appreciated. I need to stop the anxiety! Thanks.
