Just been diagnosed with subclinical hyperthyroidism and prescribed with - 10 mgs carbimazole. I have had many symptoms for 15 years or so but never been given medication before. I've been reading about the weight gain caused by carbimazole and I'm very reluctant to start, as I have a constant struggle with my weight.
Are there any alternatives to these meds which don't cause weight gain? My T3+4 are normal but my TSH is low and feeling faint and shakey has worsened recently. Apparently I now have a fast heart rate but I've never had this before.
