Taking tapizol while pregnant

ok. i'm 12 weeks preg today!!and super xcited but i also have graves diease and need to keep my thyroid in check so i'm on this med called tapizol 5 mg everyother day, i've read such bad things bout it and all the problems it can cause but my dr said it was ok if i was on a low dosage, i do trust him but want to no if there is anyone else out there that took the same drug as ido.
the safe drug you can take is ptu, but i was on that for over a yr{i seen an half ass dr} who did'nt care bout me and it did me more harm than good so that is out of the question. i'm a nervious wreck bout this!! and please for all the mom's out there who are reading this and you want to say negitive things to me keep ypu comments to yourself

  • Honestly IDK what to tell you...I think you should trust your dr if he says its ok. I've never been on anything for that. I have depression and take cymbalta but i wasnt diagnosed till after I had my last child and I don't plan on having another for a while. Im sorry I couldnt help but just trust the doc.
