I was put on PTU and a Beta Blocker one year ago. The PTU was a large dose at first. I think it was 300 mg 2x a day. It was too much. I went to hypo and could not get off the couch. Around January my Dr finally got me on a dosage that made me feel human again. Just when I was actually ready to venture out in the world, he decided that I could come off the medicine. After three weeks of no meds, I started to have major symptoms. Shaking, rapid heart rate and MAJOR panic and anxiety attacks. I have never had these in my life. I found myself in the bathroom of the hotel we was staying in on vacation. I started therapy to help me cope with this and my therapist suggested a anti-depressant anti-anxiety. Does anyone else with Graves take these drugs? Has it helped. I really do not know what to do.
