Brief Answer: Tapazole is in the same group as carbimazole Detailed Answer: Thanks for your response. Tapazole is a medicine in the same group as carbimazole which I had suggested. And that is the prerogative of your treating doctor. The dose will have to be decided as per your symptoms, and the actual levels of the thyroid test. Looking forward to your return query if I can help you further. Best of luck Dr Saumya Mittal
