The Usefulness Of The Drug Methimazole?
What are the drugs in the market called?
Hello Najwa, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Methimazole or also called Thiamazole, is a drug that belongs to the group of antithyroid drugs, drugs that function to block the production of thyroid hormones (hormones produced by the thyroid gland) by blocking several pathways in the hormone production cycle.
As mentioned above, this drug belongs to the class of antithyroid drugs and works to reduce thyroid hormone so that this drug is recommended for use in hyperthyroidism conditions because in patients with this condition excessive thyroid hormone production occurs.
Methimazole or Thiamazole is a common name for the drug so that if you are looking for this drug at a pharmacy, the pharmacist will certainly know / know and will provide the right medicine if you prescribe from your doctor to buy the drug because this drug is not included in the drug free which can be purchased without a doctor's prescription.
I hope this helps.
