Thyro-block Discontinued Medpointe Pharmaceuticals has discontinued production of Thyro-block™ 130mg potassium iodine radiation tablets. This means that IOSAT is the only full strength tablet FDA approved and legally sold in the U.S. This can be verified by doing a Discontinued Drug Products search for potassium iodide in the FDA's orange book. In addition, to verify which brands of potassium iodide are FDA approved, and therefore legal to sell for radiation exposure in the U.S., search for potassium iodide in the orange book but select OTC instead of Discontinue Drug Products. The only brands of radiation pills listed are IOSAT tablets (full-strength KI tablet), ThyroShield (liquid) and ThyroSafe tablets (half-strength tablet). Any others you might see on the internet are illegally sold for radiation exposure. Homeland Security and KI : Congressman Markey blasts Nukepills Guidelines ...“The threat of nuclear terrorism is real and dangerous,” said Rep. Markey. “The draft guidelines do not yet reflect the seriousness of the threat, or encourage State and local governments to take advantage of a program aimed at helping them protect the health of those living near nuclear power plants from a release of radioactive iodine.” Letter to Sec. Tommy Thompson about Potassium Iodide..."The White House declared that KI [potassium iodide] was a 'crucial' drug..." Remarks on the need for potassium iodide made by Commission Chairman Nils Diaz of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on 11/10/2001..."use of potassium iodide pills would have significantly reduced the incidence of thyroid cancer [during Chernobyl]".
