Can anyone advise me how long you should stay on anti thyroid drugs? I am on a 12 month backpacking trip around Asia. I have a goitre diagnosed two years ago but has caused me no problems then three months ago my heart started going crazy, irregular and thumping like mad, I went to a doctor in Bangkok who put me on anti thyroid drugs whic has sorted it out and the goitre had really shrunk. I have however put on about 10lbs and my toe nails are disgusting. Should I just carry on taking them or stop now that the original problems have gone. Sorry to sound a bit thick but it is so difficult to get advise out here
