gaining weight after hyperthyroid treatment

Hi, I was diagnosed with graves disease and hyperthyroid 3 months ago. my tsh0.01,  t4 free 4.1, t3free 11.7, tsi 229 so I was put on 50 mg of methimazole and 30 mg propanolol a day for 1 month.  Now my tsh 0.01, t4 free 1.3, t3 free 3.8 so my dr. said stop taking the propanolol and dropped the Methimazole down to 10 mg once a day. right before the change of meds I started gaining weight 5 lbs a week and still rising. when first diagnoised I had been loosing weight.  My question is, will I stop gaining weight and when? Going crazy in Westlake....

Hi cnswede.

Welcome to the forum.

This might take time to get it right. It's through trial and error.
Your changes have to be monitored frequently as there's no magic formula.
Over time your specialist will figure out the optimum dosage for balancing your thyroid function, but make sure that you're in touch with his office, often, as this can cause one to ...go crazy (as you mentioned, and I know you didn't mean this literally-lol!)
Hope it works out well for you very soon!
Cheers!
