Two questions...Has anyone taking Toprol XL experienced extreme bouts of lightheadedness, but not to the point of dizziness? Has anyone taken Toprol XL and estrogen replacement? Thanks for your time and input.

My husband (Larry) after having open heart surgery was prescription Topazole for an enlarged thyroid gland . Is this a serious disease as suggested and why not synthroid pills.

The difference in what is prescribed, depends on what type of thyroid issue he has, what is causing it to be enlarged.

A person can have either and overactive or an underactive thyroid. Since Tapazole is an antithyroid medications, I have to assume then, that his is over active.

Synthroid would be prescribed for an underactive thyroid to supplement the lack of hormones it is producing.

So basically, your husband's thyroid is producing TOO MUCH of the thyroid hormones, so he doesn't need more, he needs something, exactly like Tapazole that will lower the amount his Thyroid produces.

Here's the monograph link for more information:
