I'm new to this group and joined because my daughter has just been diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism. She's been very unwell, it has caused storms in the shape of acute psychotic episodes, twice now. She's on anti-psychotics currently, a very low dose which seems to be helping her and is currently doing fine. We had a massive cyst come up on her thyroid nodules, which had to be drained, and within a few days was in acute psychosis. We had to fight hard to get Endocrinology involved! Anyway, now they're about to prescribe Carbimazole, alongside the anti-psychotic (Resperidone) which I'm feeling very nervous about. Can anyone shed light on how they've got on with Carb' and has anyone every taken it alongside Resperidone? I would rather she finishes one treatment before starting another and feel strongly that it would be better to start a very low dose and increase if necessary, rather than starting high and coming down. I am desperate to find out as much as possible, it's all so dicey and I don't feel we're really being given enough information about the side effects etc. The potential of a sore throat becoming life threatening for example, whaaat?! How would she know the differeneat between a cold on the way and the need to rush into A&E? Many questions here, thanks for taking the time to read and please do let us know if you have any experiences around these meds. Many thanks.
