Saw new dr. hospital endo clinic, dx Thyrotoxicosis. dr. said what turned hyper symptoms on can be shut off w/ATD’s, told me thyroid small, neck swollen slighty nothing 2 go batty over. Was on Metoprolol 4, 2 mos 25MG 2X day 2 tide me over for today’s appt. Started MMI 10 MG 1X day in beginning 6/07 with another endo previous 2day’s appt. Stopped MMI after 2 weeks due 2 itching,minor hair loss, was scared, wasn’t able 2 stop beta blocker same way. Mention previous side effects experiencing with MMI, new endo suggest I try PTU, I said no way, said I would have to take 4 or 5 doses of PTU to equate potentcy of dosage or two of Methimazole, sense 2 me. Endo got NASTY, dismissive, told resident 2 document my chart due 2 patient’s foolishness 2 start me Metoprolol 25 MG 2 tabs twice daily 100 MG Methimazole 20 MG daily
Dr. use scare tactics MMI damaging 2 liver, asked 4 liver function & white blood cell test, he said no need. Is dr. trying hard 2 sabotage dosages 4 me 2 switch 2 PTU or be @ his mercy for RAI in future, could I die or get extremely sick after 2 months consumption on his med regimen already Dr. Lupo? Said MMI can cause severe sore throat, bone marrow prbs, could I end up hypo way too fast with his med regimen? Thyrotoxicos is it temporary, how soon b4 get better/see difference? 4 tabs Metoprolol is 2much, 32 female, is dr. doping up elephant? How long 2 get off beta blocker if consume increase doses? Ask resident why dr. increased both med doses so high is it revenge? Resident said want 2 play catch up recovery time, very leery about taking (4) 25 MG beta blocker tablets a day 2 me feels excessive, feel like I’m going to mess my heart up more if I were 2 increase it, hard 2 tailor down later. Only going 2 take 2 beta blocker tabs & 2 MMI tabs. Attending dr. won’t answer concerns, questions b/c I chose ATD slighty more potent IMO. Where I can complain about his manners, 6th endo 2 treat me like cow dung pretty tired of it.
