Dear user, hi! your mother seems to be suffering from hyperthyroidism. To make sure that what is causing her to be hyperthyroid, you need to make her undergo 99TC thyroid uptake scan at some nuclear medicine center.
treatment actually depends on the report. but this much i can comment that carbimazole 5 mg is a very low dose, she will require 20 mg twice a day to begin with. there is no role of syrup for thyroid disorder, if it has been given for some other reason, then it is fine. regards!
