Hi, dear
I have gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.

Your wife has hypothyroidism.
She needs drug like synthroid or eltroxin.

Drugs like propylthiouracil, carbimazole, methimazole are used in treatment of hyperthyroidism.

So check her T3, T4 and TSH confirm first whether she has hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and then plan accordingly.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you very good health.
