WHAT


Carbimazole is a medicine which is part of the class of drugs used to treat thyroid related conditions. Unlike drugs such as levothyroxine (T4) or liothyronine sodium (T3), Carbimazole  is used to treat those with overactive as opposed to underactive thyroid glands. Thyroid hormones play a crucial role in regulating our ability to process nutrients with a more active thyroid being associated with a faster metabolism and often leading to individuals being underweight for their height. While an underactive thyroid is more common, hyperthyroidism is still a serious condition and Carbimazole is considered the primary treatment method for sufferers.

WHY


Carbimazole works rapidly although effects may take a while to notice due to pre-existing stores of T3 and T4 in the body. Nevertheless, Carbimazole is a very effective treatment which can restore patient health with a relative lack of side effects.

WHO


Licensed for those with hyperthyroidism, Carbimazole is suitable for patients of both sexes with it being predominantly used in older individuals whose thyroid glands have lost efficiency in their operation. Carbimazole can also be used by children albeit with doses adjusted.

WHEN


Carbimazole is usually taken at a dose of one to three 20mg tablets daily or else anywhere from four to twelve 5mg tablets. Carbimazole can be taken with our without food according to patient preferences. Generally speaking once control of an overactive thyroid has been established doses are usually titrated downwards to as low as one to three 5mg tablets daily. As with all medicines, your doctor may personalise your dosing regimen and in all cases, you should defer to the instructions of your physician. Always refer to product literature.
