carbimazole
n.
a thionamide used to reduce the production of thyroid hormone in cases of overactivity of the gland (thyrotoxicosis); it is the most commonly used antithyroid drug in the UK. A prodrug, it is administered by mouth and converted to its biologically active metabolite, methimazole, within the body. Gastrointestinal upsets, rashes, and itching may occur; more rarely, carbimazole may cause myelosuppression.
