I have graves disease. My anxiety is out of control. Never felt this way. Could my methimazole be causing it?

In brief: Unlikely

Hyperthyroidism is commonly associated with anxiety symptoms.
Methimazole will gradually bring down your thyroid level, but it takes weeks/months to work. If you are having more anxiety, it is likely that your thyroid level is still high.
