I have been diagnosed Hyperthyroidism and jaundice at the same time 2 weeks ago. My T3 was raised to nearly 5 with elisa method and total billirubin was 4.1.
and in this case my doctor prescribed me to take Neo-Mercazole 5 for ten days.After taking for 6 days I just searched for this drug on the net and found that in the case of higher billirubin this drug should be discontinued. So now what should I do. Please give me the expert advice.
Thanks.
