      I have been seeing a GP last week saw an endo, he thinks I may need a second dose of RAI-because the first was not strong enough-anyone heard of this? He says he give pills prior to RAI and that will cut the after effects I am really nervous about a second dose, but then I seem to be nervous about everything these days Thanks

        A certain percentage of people need a second RAI, and in relatively rare cases a third or occasionally a fourth dose is needed, especially when the initial dose was relatively small, aimed at slowing down the thyroid instead of destroying it entirely.

        When we’re hyper it’s normal to feel nervous about many things!

        Best wishes,
