A remedy containing inorganic iodine. When iodides enter the epithelium cells of the thyroid follicle under the influence of the enzyme iodide peroxidase, iodine is oxidized to form elemental iodine, which is included in the tyrosine molecule. In this case, one part of the tyrosine radicals in thyroglobulin is iodized. Iodized tyrosine radicals condense into thyronines, the main of which are thyroxine (T) 4 ) and Triiodothyronine (T) 3 ). The resulting complex of thyronine and thyroglobulin is released, as a deposited form of thyroid hormone, into the colloid of the follicle and persists in this state for several days or weeks. With iodine deficiency, this process is disturbed. Potassium iodide, compensating for iodine deficiency, helps to restore the impaired synthesis of thyroid hormones.
With a normal content of iodine in the environment, under the influence of excess iodides, the biosynthesis of thyroid hormones, their release from thyroglobulin is inhibited, the sensitivity of the thyroid gland to the thyroid-stimulating hormone of the pituitary gland decreases and its secretion by the pituitary gland is blocked.
Indications for use
Prevention and treatment of endemic goiter. Prevention of recurrence of goiter during the period of complex treatment with thyroid hormone preparations.
Severe hyperthyroidism, latent hyperthyroidism (when used in doses exceeding 150 μg / day), toxic adenoma, nodular or diffuse toxic goiter (when used in doses of 300-1000 μg / day), herpetiform dermatitis (Dühring's disease), pregnancy and breastfeeding (when used in doses of 1-2 mg / day), hypersensitivity to iodine preparations.
Use in pregnancy and lactation
During pregnancy, the use is possible only in recommended doses, because iodine penetrates the placental barrier and can cause the development of hypothyroidism and goiter in the fetus.
Iodine is excreted in breast milk. When used in the mother during lactation (breastfeeding) in doses of more than 1 mg / day, there is a risk of hypothyroidism in an infant.
Use in renal dysfunctionAgainst the background of therapy in patients with renal insufficiency, the development of hyperkalemia is possible.
Special instructionsAgainst the background of therapy in patients with renal failure may develop hyperkalemia.
Dosage and Administration
Inside, after eating, with plenty of fluids. Treatment of goiter for adults and children from 12 years - 300-500 μg / day, children under 12 years - 100-200 μg / day. For the prevention of goiter with iodine deficiency: adults and children from 12 years old - 100-200 μg / day, children under 12 years old (including newborns) - 50-100 μg / day, pregnant and lactating - 150-200 μg / day. Prevention of relapse after therapeutic treatment of iodine deficiency goiter - 100-200 μg / day. After surgical treatment of goiter in newborns, children and adolescents - 100-200 μg / day. The duration of treatment is determined by the doctor; prophylactic adults are usually prescribed for several months, years or a lifetime; children and adolescents - usually within 6-12 months.
Manifestations of iodism: swelling of the nasal mucosa, urticaria, angioedema, eosinophilia, shock; tachycardia, irritability, sleep disturbances, increased sweating, diarrhea (in patients older than 40 years) are also possible;
In some cases, when used in doses exceeding 300-1000 μg / day, hyperthyroidism may develop (especially in elderly patients, in the presence of nodular or diffuse toxic goiter);
With high-dose therapy (more than 1 mg / day), goiter caused by iodine and, accordingly, hypothyroidism can develop.
Store in a dark place at a temperature not exceeding 25 ° C.
