      My endo said that I could either be put on PTU or
      Tapazole. I asked him what the difference was between
      the two and said they basically do the same thing.
      My question is, are the side-effects different?
      Is there anything else I should know about the
      differences? Have any of you tried both and have
      info about the differences? I have heard that
      Tapazole can also help some with the eye condition
      some people get with Graves (which I hope I am not
      getting…my eyes look a little bulging and they
      are extremely dry). Any info on these two drugs would
      be useful. Also, I have read that anti-thryroid meds
      only have a 30 to 40 % success rate at supressing
      Graves’. Is this true?
