I read the Thyroid sticky and I'm confused about the dosage of Idodral. I have Iodoral which consists of Idoine - 5mg and Iodide (as potassium salt) 7.5mg which comes to 12.5mg for Total Iodine/Iodide.
Am I supposed to take 50mg (4 pills) or just one pill daily?
4 is for "loading", if you can tolerate it. Some folks can't tolerate the full 50mg/day - GI issues, etc.. Personally, I did one tablet in the AM and one in the PM for a month - 6 weeks. Now I take a 1/2 tablet in the AM daily.
KSMan said that he didn't recommend that high of a dose once you get past the loading stage. And there are people who after a while develop problems (hypo/hyperthyroidism) due to high dosage in iodine.
Think he said he takes a half a tab every two weeks.
