Suggest correct medicine for hyperthyroidism

Hi, My periods gone irregular after my marriage. I am married for one year now. We are planning for a kid from last six months. When I consulted a gynec, I was found to be hyperthyroidic. She has prescribed me eltroxin 100mcg for a month and also modus 10mg for 10 days starting from 16th day of my periods. As we are planning for pregnancy currently, should I take modus 10mg as prescribed?? please advise.

Hello thanks for contacting health care magic.
Going through your history I find that, you must be having hypothyroidism. not hyperthyroidism. eltroxin which contains levo-thyroxine is used to treat same. you need to be euthyroid before planning for pregnancy. And increase the dose by 25 to 50 % as soon you find that you are pregnant. Modus is to regularise the period not treat the thyroid dysfunction. modus should stopped immmediately as when you know you are preganant.
Bye Take care have a good day.
