hi it is the only meds that can be given if you are pregnant and hyper. You need to see an endocrinologist who specialises in caring for pregnant ladies. Your diarrhea is due to being hyper. Being scared is normal as hypers have panic attacks. Do seek some advice from your GP or from here.

I put on weight when on carbimazole but the weight loss should slow and stop when the meds start to work. Your bloods should improve and you should, if all goes well stop loosing weight. Many people lose weight when pregnant to start with so dont panic. Do see your GP.
