150 mg Iodoral for 10 months. If I don't get it I wake up at 2 a.m. wondering where the heck my iodine is. Need it with a bit of SSKI, currently 4 drops of Trapper's (120 mg). My breasts don't hurt and my thyroid works better having enough elemental, but the iodide doesn't seem to be available enough, or gets used, so I need the SSKI in addition. I don't know about that much for a man, and I'm biased towards SSKI with no more than a few milligrams of elemental for men. But that's an uneducated bias based on the fact that Hubby's metabolism gets dragged down by elemental after a few weeks, no matter the form, while he sails along on SSKI. Everybody's different.
