Glynis,

When I was on PTU, due to a misunderstanding with my doctor, I took too
much for about six weeks…or at least more than he wanted me to take.
I was on beta blockers for heart symptoms, specifically was having chest
pain. Saw doc about something else and he asked in passing how I was
doing with the PTU. I was still having chest pains, so he told me to
up my meds to four times/day instead of three. I increased both PTU
*and* beta blockers. He noticed immediately when I had my next blood
test and dropped me back to three times/day on the PTU. No harm done
as far as I could tell except lowering my levels to low normal from
mid-normal…maybe a little more tired than usual was all. Hope
this helps.
