Oprah admitted tonite on her Best Life Webcase that she was on Methimazole (Tapazole) when treating her thyroid problem. Methimazole is an anti-thyroid drug. So it appears that Oprah had Hashimoto’s Toxicosis–an autoimmune combination of Hashimotos and Graves. Treatment with Tapazole can be common in treating Hashimoto’s Toxicosis. But you are left wondering about the weight gain and depression—common symptoms of hypothyroidism. Whatever happened. Oprah will need to be prepared, because hypothyroidism is a good possibility for the near future. So we’ll keep our fingers crossed that she’ll become informed about desiccated thyroid.
Anybody had Hashi’s Toxicosis and treated with Tapazole?
