If you have a slight itch or rash from methimazole why will some endos let u stay on it (and maybe lower the dose if your labs support it) or take an antihistimine if needed, while other endos make you either go to ptu or deal with surgery / rai? I'm angry about this. I think a slight rash is a side effect that's tolerable and quite common. If /when it worsens or seems clear its an allergy, of course id switch. But how do I convince my endo of this??
ive read there are numerous people who develop this rash or itchiness ans stay on it and it eventually clears up. I'm frustrated the endo doesn't want to hear that when many other endos seem to listen to their patients. I'm in an area with few choices and I otherwise like this endo. Anyone have experience with itchiness or rash a few weeks into the methimazole and what was your outcome?
