I have graves disease which is under control. Tapazole (methimazole) 10 mg. daily. Does seasonal flu have serious effects on graves patients? Thanks

In brief: Flu

Your Grave's should be under control and not affected by flu.
That said, you should see your doctor about your flu and also get labs to confirm that your thyroid is under control.
