I am a 48-year-old man. I have suffered from hyperthyroidism for more than 20 years. I have been to many doctors but I have not got any long-term benefits. They gave me Methimazole, Propranolol, and Cyproheptadine for a while. I put on weight for a while but became skinny again. I need your immediate help.
After years of using those pills, I did not get any result, I started to treat myself. I have not gotten any results though. I am very thin. Please help. I have attached the reports.

The report only shows that your thyroid hormones are not controlled.
Hyperthyroid patients should control their thyroid.
You have to know the appropriate dose of Methimazole 1 mg per kg per day divided into three doses. So according to your weight, you should take 20 mg every eight hours.
Propranolol 40 mg should be taken every eight hours. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and with their consent take the medicines.
Also, you have to know that there are other options like radioactive iodine and surgery.
So please tell me if you have any questions about the other treatments.
