Other medicines that doctors may use to treat the symptoms of hyperthyroidism include:
Beta-blocker medicines. Examples are propranolol (such as Inderal), atenolol (Tenormin), and metoprolol (Lopressor). These drugs control a fast heartbeat, tremors, sweating, and nervousness. Your doctor may prescribe one of them while you wait for antithyroid medicine or radioactive iodine treatment to start working.
Medicated eyedrops. You may use these if your eyes are irritated.
Corticosteroid medicines. These control any pain or swelling in the thyroid gland.
