Anytime I'm on carbimazole, particularly 60mg, I always develop a sore throat and it's very painful, should I stop taking it?
Carbimazole: I would not recommend stopping the medication, due to risk of developing hyperthyroidism & cardiovascular complications. Discuss with your prescribing doctor your symptoms & explore options to help with such side-effects.
What is the difference between ptu (propylthiouracil) and carbimazole? Is it possible to switch medication?
Different: Carbimazole is converted to an anti=thyroid drug methimazole. Ptu (propylthiouracil) is a different anti-thyroid drug. Both are effective. Ptu (propylthiouracil) better, but not used as much since it can be associated with liver disease. Both have potential side effects. Talk w/your doctor.

Hyperthyroidism: Hi. Carbimazole (or its active metabolite, methimazole) can be used to treat hyperthyroidism (Graves' or hyper nodule (s)). It will NEVER cure hyper nodules, although it can control them indefinitely. There is a chance of curing Graves' disease, although the cure rate is only on the order of 50% after 2 years of treatment. As long as thee no adverse side effects, the drug can be used indefinitely.
Found diagnosed with hyper tyroid recently with blood test report. Taking Camazol (carbimazole) 5mg one pill daily. What is my chance of recovering?
Need more info: Carbimazole will lower your thyroid level as long as you remain on the medication. The cause for your hyperthyroidism (Grave's disease, toxic nodule, multinodular goiter) will determine whether you will be able to come off the medication and have a normal thyroid level. Most people need a dose of carbimazole higher than 5 mg daily initially.
What are other medications for surgery other than carbimazole and propylthiouracil (ptu) and how effective are they?
Don't understand: These drugs are used in the treatment of hypothyroidism. I am assuming you mean are they effective in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. That is something you need to discuss with you physician and endocrinologist. There are many causes of hyperthyroidism and it will depend on that.See 1 more doctor answer
