Under a website called Natural Endocrine Solutions, the doctor states,
“In summary, the TSH is commonly depressed in hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease. Although antithyroid medications and herbs such as methimazole and bugleweed can cause an increase in the TSH, these agents aren’t doing anything for the cause of the problem. As for how long it takes for the TSH to normalize without the help of antithyroid medication or bugleweed, it can take up to 12 months, and in some cases longer than this. But as long as the thyroid hormone levels are consistently decreasing there shouldn’t be a concern.”
