Brief Answer:
sure you can go for XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I know Neomercazole 2.5 mg is not available. the tablet 5 mg is a scored tablet and can be broken into half.
now your thyroid balance is anyways normal so XXXXXXX is not very much recommended now.
still if you want you can go for it but for that you will have to take off neomercazole for sometime , allow hyper thyroid state to go up again and then the gland can be ablated.
as of your body pains, you can take Calcium, Vitamin D, Pregabaline to help you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

regards!

thanks Doctor XXXXXXX

I have stopped the medication since 2 weeks now. will wait and observe the changes and the levels of TSH.

what should be the normal range of TSH. also what dosage of Pregabaline should i take. are there any side effects.

there is hoarseness of voice also due to the goitre. could the body pain be due to menopause. I wake up sweating a lot at night. what can be taken for the menopause symtoms like dryness etc.

Brief Answer:
pregabaline might cause little sedation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Normal desired TSH value is between 1-3 uIU/ml.
Pregabaline can be taken as 75 mg at night. might cause some drowsiness.
If your goitre is big enough to cause hoarseness of voice, you might need ablation or surgery.
yes symptom overlap is significant between thyroid and menopause. you may require HRT ie hormone replacement therapy , if symptoms are much. for vaginal dryness there are estrogen creams available, lubricants as well.

Take care,
Dr. Minal Mohit
