Hi, and welcome to Healthcare Magic, Please do continue to take your regular Medications, your Doctor advised you to consult him the moment you have some fever
because Methmiazole tends to lower the number White Blood Cells or the disease fighting squad in plain English, hence special care to prevent catching Cold etc.
along with your regular medication please add Amoxycillin 500mg three times a day
to prevent and cure Bacterial infection, Paracetamol 2 500mg tabs every 4-6 hours for fever and pain and Loratidine 1 tab 2 times a day for runny/stuffy nose, drink plenty of fluids have proper rest and i hope all shall be well.Oh! almost forgot, substitute to other Medicine if you are allergic to any of the above medicines.

Request your doctor to get a White Blood Cell Count done and then decide whether to continue Methimazole or not. You may take a lower dose of Propranolol for some days before discontinuing. Alternatives are available for both the above types of medicines. Taking Melatonin is fine. You may try 2.5 mg first.
