    Dear Bernadette,
    I thought I was the only one in the history of graves to put weight on. I gained 20 pounds! I was on the PTU for 6 months and then took the atomic cocktail last January. Unfortunately my levels are back up and my doctor wants me to take the PTU again but I refuse. The medicine made me feel terrible. I was also taking the inderal but I had the rare side affect of hallucenating. I am now taking atenenol which has no side affects for me. I hope to have another I131 treatment as soon as possible.
    P.S. My stomach is also very bloated.
