    My wife takes 10 mg/d of methimazole (for Graves Disease hyperthyroidism) and still has problems with anger, mood swings, etc. from time to time. Should we expect the methimazole to be able to control these symptoms?

    Hello and welcome – emotional issues *should* start to abate once levels are normal and stable. However, healing can take longer for someone who has gone undiagnosed for a while.

    This video on the emotional aspects of Graves’ will hopefully be of interest, as well as these links from our website.

    Wishing you and your wife all the best.
