Comment:
I was diagnosed with 2 nodules. Within 2 weeks of starting tapazole I was sleeping much better, had more energy during the day. By three months my TSH level was improved and I was moved up to 10 mg daily. It did show less side effects by splitting the dose half AM / half PM. Now a year later my TSH is very good and I am starting to wean off the medication .... I feel very good.
