  • i took Carbimazole for years and felt awful.... with heart palpitations and so on. My endo. recommended a thyroidectomy, which I eventually went with. I suppose it depends what your symptoms are and how you feel while taking Carbimazole..... it might work better for you than it did for me.

  • Sorry for the late reply, hope it went well with your consultant.

    How come you haven't been seen by them for 18 months & have been kept on such a high dose of carb? I see my endo every 3 months max & have had my carb increased & reduced several times (mainly reduced although on hugher dose again as t4 started rising) since I started.
