Until you: Can control and normalize your thyroid level with either radioiodine or antithyroid drugs, get your doctor to prescribe a beta blocker like metoprolol. It don't treat your thyroid, but can block some or most of the effects of the excess thyroid hormone on your nervous system, making you life a lot more comfortable and safer as well.
