Brief Answer:
normal thyroid report not attached.

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir,

As you said your thyroid balance is normal now, but I could not find a normal report attached. Kindly send a recent thyroid profile report.

If your motions are still continuing you can try two things
1. either increase the dose of neomercazole to 20 mg a day or
2. try anti motility drugs like loperamide.

Discuss with your treating doctor about my recommendations and please send the recent thyroid report as well.

Brief Answer:
you were correct.

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, yes you were right, your thyroid balance is normal. you can reduce your neomercazole to 5 mg and repeat test after 3 months and let me know. You may try drugs like Enterogermina ampoules three times a day for 5 days or Tab sporolac with the help of your doctor's prescription. Often Loperamide is tried as well. Ask your doctor about them.
