Are you taking this dose all at one time? With a meal? With a meal that include fats? Or just with water and no food? I would try splitting up the dose over the course of the day and take with your meals. Maybe you are reactive to Lugol's and need to try just plain old potassium iodide? I had some real issues with Lugols back in the day and stopped as I had prior to that used potassium Iodide with zero complaints. just a thought. trapper just shared that Iodine helps with the metabolism of fats and digestion of it so maybe you need more fats to balance the high dose? Not sure, maybe trapper can be more informative here on this.
