In general, pay attention to a conscientious dosage, especially for babies, small children and the elderly. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist about any effects or precautions.

A dosage prescribed by the doctor may deviate from the information on the package leaflet. Therefore, since the doctor adjusts them individually, you should use the medicine according to his instructions.

Mode of action:
How does the ingredient in the drug work?

Iodine, in its water-soluble form potassium iodide, is an important component of thyroid hormones. The thyroid hormones are essential for the functioning of the human metabolism. If the iodine intake through food is not sufficient, iodine must be taken in addition to maintain the body's own thyroid hormone production.

What speaks against an application?

- Hypersensitivity to the ingredients
- Hyperthyroidism

Under certain circumstances - talk to your doctor or pharmacist about this:
- Tendency to hyperthyroidism
- Thyroid autonomy (certain form of hyperthyroidism)

What about pregnancy and breastfeeding?
- Pregnancy: consult your doctor. Various considerations play a role in whether and how the drug can be used during pregnancy.
- Breast-feeding: consult your doctor or pharmacist. He will examine your particular starting position and advise you accordingly as to whether and how you can continue breastfeeding.

If you have been prescribed the drug despite a contraindication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. The therapeutic benefit can be higher than the risk that the use entails in the event of a contraindication.

Side effects:
What side effects can occur?

Only side effects that have only occurred in exceptional cases so far are described for the drug.

If you notice any discomfort or changes during treatment, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

For the information at this point, side effects are primarily taken into account that occur in at least one in 1,000 patients treated.

Important information:
What should you consider?
- Be careful if you are allergic to iodine!
- There may be medicines with which interactions occur. You should therefore generally tell your doctor or pharmacist about any other medicine you are already using before starting treatment with a new medicine. This also applies to medicines that you buy yourself, use only occasionally or have been using for some time.
