Methimazole (Tapazole) - Overview
Methimazole (Tapazole) is used in treating hyperthyroidism secondary to conditions such as Graves' disease. Push Health can connect people who might need a methimazole prescription with licensed medical providers who can prescribe thiamazole or Tapazole if it is appropriate to do so.
Methimazole - Mechanism of Action
Methimazole, also known as thiamazole and marketed under the brand name Tapazole, is used in treating an overactive thyroid gland, or hyperthyroidism. Methimazole's mechanism of action is to block the production of thyroid hormone rather than affecting existing thyroid hormone. Tapazole (methimazole) works by blocking an enzyme known as thyroperoxidase which is necessary for T3 and T4 hormone synthesis.
Methimazole - Dosage and Cost
Methimazole is soluble in water and is found as a white, crystalline substance. Methimazole is broken down in the liver after oral administration and excreted in the urine. Some medical providers prescribe methimazole with a starting daily dosage in adults of methimazole 5 mg per day but the dose prescribed depends on the judgement of the provider and the health needs of the patient. Methimazole tablets are oral, white to off white tablets that contain methimazole 5 mg or methimazole 10 mg and other inactive ingredients. Methimazole tablets should be stored at 15° C to 30° C. Methimazole is affordable at under 30 cents per pill at many pharmacies. Methimazole coupons may be available online and the cost of thiamazole tablets may also be covered by many insurance plans.
Can I Buy Methimazole Online?
Methimazole is a medication that needs to be prescribed by a licensed medical provider to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. As a result, one cannot obtain methimazole OTC (over-the-counter) medication or buy methimazole online. People in need of a methimazole prescription can connect with a licensed medical provider through Push Health who can write a methimazole prescription if it is appropriate to do so.
Methimazole - Side Effects
Methimazole use, as is the case with other thyroid medications, can result in side effects. Side effects from methimazole use include sore throat, skin rash, fever, headache and malaise. Methimazole can also cause agranulocytosis. People who have had a hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to methimazole should not use it. Methimazole and alcohol should not be used together. Questions about possible side effects related to methimazole (Tapazole) use should be directed to one's medical provider and pharmacist.
