Methimizole

Were you looking for information about Methimazole? Methimizole is a common misspelling of methimazole.
 
If you have an overactive thyroid, your healthcare provider may recommend methimazole (Tapazole®), a prescription antithyroid medication. This product disrupts the production of thyroid hormone by preventing the oxidation of iodine. However, it does not interfere with thyroid hormones already circulating in the bloodstream.
 
Before beginning treatment, let your healthcare provider know if you are taking any other medications or have any other medical conditions, such as liver disease or a bleeding disorder.
 
Methimazole comes in the form of a tablet and is typically taken three times a day. Most people tolerate it well, but side effects (such as nausea, vomiting, or muscle pain) may occur in some cases.
