The daily dose of the drug can be taken at one time or divided into 2-3 doses in equal amounts, but the main condition is the intake of the drug strictly at the same time.
With thyrotoxicosis, the drug is prescribed in a dosage of 20-40 mg per day for 1 month. Then the patient is transferred to maintenance treatment at a dose of 5-20 mg per day. Supportive therapy is mandatory supplemented with levothyroxine sodium.

Use of the drug during pregnancy and breastfeeding

Against the background of thyroid hyperfunction in a pregnant woman, the life of the fetus may be at risk, but hypothyroidism, arising from the use of high doses of the drug Thiamazole, can lead to miscarriage.
If it is necessary to treat hyperthyroidism in a pregnant woman, the dose of the drug is determined by the doctor individually. Before starting therapy, the doctor carefully assesses the ratio of benefits to the mother and the risks to the fetus. The drug is prescribed in the lowest effective dose, and all the time monitor the condition of the pregnant woman. After childbirth it is necessary to monitor the function of the thyroid gland in a newborn for a certain period of time.
Since the active ingredient of the drug is excreted in breast milk, the development of hypothyroidism is possible in the infant, so if it is necessary to treat a nursing mother, it is best to interrupt lactation or to regularly monitor the thyroid gland in a child when combining therapy and feeding.
