    Hello and welcome – I’m sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but I’m glad that you found us. Anti-Thyroid Drugs (Methimazole, Tapazole) start working right away to block the production of new thyroid hormone, but it can take some time for the body to “burn off” its existing stores of excess thyroid hormone. However, once that happens, you should start to see some relief from your symptoms. In the meantime, this forum is a great place for information and support.
