I have been on tapazole for about 2.5 weeks. Yesterday, I woke up with a few hives and ignored it. Today I was covered in them and miserable. My doctor thinks I had an allergic reaction to the tapazole. So, she switched me to PTU. I was on 10mg of tapazole once a day and as of tonight am on 50mg of PTU twice a day. I'm really nervous about having another allergic reaction. Will it take another 2-3 weeks for me to know if I'm allergic? Also, does the switch in dosage make sense. I haven't had any blood work since I was diagnosed 4 weeks ago, but I go back on the 26th. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice.
