Can basdène 25mg and alvocadyl treat hyperthyroidism effectively? My T4 is elevated and TSH is low. My doctor said treatment will be 1.5 years.

In brief: BTU

Basdene is benzylthiouracil, a treatment for hyperthyroidism or grave's disease.
Alvocadyl is propranolol, a beta blocker that reduces the symptoms of hyperthyroidism. These medications are effective at treating hyperthyroidism caused by graves disease. (neither of these tradenames is available in the us).
