IOSAT POTASSIUM IODIDE:
What is Potassium Iodide? Potassium iodide is a white crystalline salt with chemical formula KI, used in radiation treatment. Potassium iodide may also be used to protect the thyroid from radioactive iodine in the event of an accident or terrorist attack at a nuclear power plant, or other nuclear attack. Radioiodine is a particularly dangerous radionuclide because the body concentrates it in the thyroid gland. Potassium iodide cannot protect against other causes of radiation poisoning. How many tablets are in each package? There are 14 tablets in each package of IOSAT. One package is enough to protect one adult for a one month period ONLY. What is the daily dosage required? Current FDA guidelines call for the daily administration of one IOSAT tablet (130 mg. of potassium iodide (KI)) for up to 14 days for adults and children over 60 pounds. Smaller children should take one half tablet for 14 days.
