Tapazole is a brand name of a medication that treats hyperthyroidism. The active ingredient in Tapazole is a generic drug called methimazole which prevents the thyroid gland from over-producing the thyroid hormone.
Doctors prescribe Tapazole to treat hyperthyroidism, which has symptoms such as rapid heart rate, swelling at the base of the neck and sudden weight loss. Doctors may also prescribe this medication in preparation for the surgical removal of the thyroid gland. As well, Tapazole can be used when the overactive thyroid gland cannot be removed.
Tapazole works by preventing the production of thyroid hormones but does not affect the levels of thyroid hormones that are already present in the gland or are circulating in the blood.
The daily dose of Tapazole should be divided into three equal doses, taken orally every eight hours. For mild hyperthyroidism, your doctor may prescribe a starting dose of 15mg daily. For severe hyperthyroidism, the usual starting dose is 60mg daily.
These may not be all the side effects of Tapazole 5mg.
If you have a hypersensitivity to methimazole or any of the other ingredients in Tapazole, do not take it. Do not take this medication if you are breastfeeding.
Before taking this medication, let your doctor know if you have a low white blood cell count, liver disease, joint pain, a skin disease or are lactose intolerant. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
Store Tapazole tablets at room temperature (15-30°C). Protect from light and keep tightly closed.
The thyroid is a small gland, about two inches wide, which can barely be felt under the skin in the front of the neck. Normally, the thyroid gland secretes thyroid hormones, which control the speed of the body’s chemical functions or metabolic rate. Thyroid hormones affect many body functions including heart rate, the rate at which calories are burned, growth, heat production and digestion. Hyperthyroidism is a disorder where the thyroid gland produces too much hormone and causes a raised metabolic rate. Symptoms include sudden weight loss, rapid and irregular heart beat, sweating, nervousness and frequent bowel movements. Although hyperthyroidism can be serious if you ignore it, the good news is that most people respond well to treatment.
