I also broke out in hives. I had been taken PTU for 4 weeks (itching badly but no hives)
so my doctor switched me to Tapazol. AWFUL HIVES!!! I didn’t really even know what hives were!
I was on the Tapazol for about four weeks again. The hives lasted about 10 days, though the first
couple of days were the worst. I was bleeding from the scratching and ended up with scabs all over!
Anyway, I’ve taked the iodine now, and am actually feeling really good. I am worried about the hypo
setting in, but I guess I just have to wait and see.
(I may be mistaken, but I believe I was given 30 mils – I haven’t seen anyone post that has taken that
much. I wonder if this will speed up the process?)
