Hello Mrs. Juli

Thank you for your question for HealthReplies.com

Propylthiouracil is a medication taken to treat Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism, a condition in which your thyroid gland produces excess thyroid hormone. It can also be taken before thyroid surgery or radioactive iodine therapy in patients who have been given medication, but have not shown good results.

Propylthiouracil is an antithyroid drug. These drugs make it difficult for the body to use iodine to produce thyroid hormones. This medicine cannot block the effects of thyroid hormones. These drugs are only available by prescription.

Before taking propylthiouracil, there are several things to consider:

1. Allergies. Tell your doctor if you have had an allergic or unusual reaction to this medicine.

2. Children. Due to reports of serious liver problems due to the use of this drug, propylthiouracil is not recommended in pediatric patients, except in cases where other drugs, surgery, or radioactive iodine therapy have not worked properly.

3. Geriatrics. There is no information regarding the relationship between age and the effects of propylthiouracil use in elderly patients.

4. Pregnancy. Use of propylthiouracil in pregnancy for all trimesters, falls in category D. Studies in pregnant women have shown a risk to the fetus. However, the benefits of therapy with propylthiouracil in cases of life-threatening or serious illness may outweigh the potential risks.

5. Breastfeeding. Studies show that this drug poses minimal risk to the baby, when taken during breastfeeding.

Avoid using Propylthiouracil together with the following medicines:

1. Acenocoumarol

2. Anisindione

3. Dicumarol

4. Phenindione

5. Phenprocoumon

6. Warfarin

We recommend that you consult directly with a Gynecologist, so that appropriate examination and treatment can be carried out.

Thus, hopefully this is useful.
