Is it okay to increase Methimazole dose if results are bad?


Was just informed by the endocrinologist that my results weren’t better, even though my t3 had can back in normal range my TSH had dropped by 0.0010! So they increased my Methimazole to 10 mg!

At least you have TSH levels. My TSH levels are literally 0.000 but I don't understand how yours dropped by 10.?

Hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid results in increased production of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland. It can be primary or secondary and presents with signs of accelerated metabolism such as weight loss and tachycardia. Decreased tolerance to heat and irritability are also common. Radioactive iodine administration and medication to control heartbeat are recommended.
