More information

  • Usage

    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 – 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.

  • Cost Information

    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. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    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 (Tapazole) with a starting daily dosage in adults of methimazole 5 mg per day. 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.
