Just wondered if anybody on this site has had problems with taking propylthiouracil(PTU)
I was put on this drug by my endo in February as was not tolerating carbimazole.
I have been taking 50mg 4 tablets a day, 2 in the morning and 2 at night plus a propernol beta blocker
for my graves disease. I also take methotrexate for my arthritis.
My gp sent me a letter to go in and see him as he wanted to see my about my recent blood test.
Turns out my liver function test is not as it should be. Have not seen my endo since the 19th of January 2015 supposed to see him again 4mths, they have made a mistake as my appointment is for September.
So gp has told me to half my dose and just take 2 tablets a day instead of 4.
I am quite concerned now of the side effects of this drug. Did some research online and a few people have had to have a liver transplant after being on this drug....So I am not a happy bunny to say the least.
I am waiting to have my operation to have half of my thyroid removed. So feel very anxious and stressed with this latest blood test.
ANY WORDS OF WISDOM PLEASE!!
