  • I took propylthiouracil for 30 months as treatment for Graves Disease. I developed a severe skin rash and neuropathy. My physician told me to take Claritin, use calamine lotion, and to "put up with the minor problems or be ready for surgery." Graves disease was cured (normal thyroid level for 5 years) but the symptoms have persisted. Tested by neurologist for neuropathy, and could not find a cause --- told to live with it. Still have vertigo and neuropathy. HELP
