What is carbimazole?

Carbimazole is used to control an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism).

It stops your thyroid gland from making too much thyroid hormone (thyroxine or triiodothyronine).

What is it used for?

Reducing the production of thyroid hormones in people with an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism).

How to take carbimazole

Swallow your carbimazole tablets whole with a glass of water.

Try taking your carbimazole tablets at the same times each day.

You can take carbimazole with or without food.

If you forget to take your dose, take it as soon as you remember. But, if it is nearly time for your next dose, just take the next dose at the right time. Do not take double the dose.

Keep taking your carbimazole tablets. It may take 4 to 8 weeks before you notice an improvement. 

Carbimazole is an antithyroid medicine. It is used to decrease the amount of thyroid hormones produced by the thyroid gland.

How does it work?

Carbimazole is used to reduce production of thyroid hormones when excessive amounts are being produced by an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism).

The thyroid gland uses a chemical called iodine in the production of thyroid hormones. Iodine must be converted in the body to a useable form before it can be combined with other components to form thyroid hormones.

Carbimazole works by preventing the conversion of iodine to its useable form. Carbimazole also stops converted iodine from being combined with other components to form thyroid hormones. This results in a decreased production of thyroid hormones.
