Tapazole contains the generic ingredient methimazole, which belongs to the class of drugs called antithyroid medications. Tapazole is used to treat hyperthyroidism, otherwise known as an overactive thyroid gland.
Doctors prescribe Tapazole to treat hyperthyroidism, which if left untreated can lead to life-threatening conditions. Doctors also prescribe Tapazole to treat and prepare an overactive thyroid gland for surgical removal or radioactive iodine treatment. If the gland cannot be removed, doctors may prescribe Tapazole to decrease the production of thyroid hormone.
Tapazole works by preventing the thyroid gland from making too much thyroid hormone but does not interfere with the actions of the existing thyroid hormone which is necessary for normal metabolism and development.
Depending on the severity of your condition, the initial daily dose is 15mg for mild hyperthyroidism; 30mg to 40mg daily for moderately severe hyperthyroidism; or 60mg daily for severe hyperthyroidism. Tapazole tablets should be taken orally every eight hours.
These may not be all the side effects of Tapazole 10mg.
If you are breastfeeding, you should not take this medication. Do not use Tapazole if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the formulation.
Discuss your medical history with your doctor, especially if you have a skin disease, joint pain, low white blood cell count or liver disease. Tell your doctor about the medications you are taking, especially anticoagulants (blood thinners), which may interact with Tapazole.
Keep this medication tightly closed and away from light. Store at room temperature.
Hyperthyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland becomes overactive and makes an excessive amount of thyroid hormones, which increases the body’s metabolic rate. As a result, symptoms appear such as heart palpitations, insomnia, sudden weight loss without trying, irritability, frequent bowel movements and sweating. Doctors take blood samples to determine the levels of TSH hormone (thyroid stimulating hormone) and the two metabolic hormones thyroxine (T4) and tri-iodothyronine (T3). Hyperthyroidism is easily treated and patients can lead healthy lives. Without treatment, hyperthyroidism can lead to serious heart problems, bone problems, and a potentially life-threatening condition called thyroid storm, where an individual's heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature can soar to dangerously high levels.
