  1. Penelope Kelly

    I got myself checked since I noticed that my heartbeat’s irregularly faster. It made me worried but it was said to be due to my hyperthyroidism. My endocrinologist put me on methimazole. I noticed improvements after taking them for a month. No side effects that I have noticed except how my stomach gets upset on the first week but it doesn’t happen now anymore.
