Is there anyone out there who has been successfully treated with carbimazole? If so, how long did it take? I have been on carbimazole for 2 years. Initially started treatment at 40mg and dosed gradually down to 5 mg alternate days. My last bloods showed that my hormones had gone in the wrong direction (T3 and T4 up and TSH suppressed), so back up to 5mg per day. My consultant suggested radioactive iodine treatment. I am keen to pursue with carbimazole. Has anyone be cured with carbimazole after 2 years? Is radioactive iodine inevitable?
Any experiences on the matter here would be very welcome.
