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.
