Our Family Radiation Emergency Kit PLUS™ includes 5 packs of FDA-Approved Iosat™ Potassium Iodide (3 130mg adult-strength packs and 2 65mg child-strength packs) Both are effective and safe for adults and children.
Adults would take one of the 130mg tablets each day, or two of the 65mg tablets each day. Children would take one of the 65mg tablets a day, or up to 1/2 of the 130mg Iosat™ tablets a day, depending on age (the tablet is scored for easy splitting). The FDA Consumer Drug Product Insert is included with both.
This kit is specifically designed for use during a nuclear radiation emergency (nuclear reactor release or fallout from a nuclear bomb) in which radioactive iodine (I-131) may be released into the atmosphere.

How many packs of potassium iodide should I stockpile?
Storing at least one pack PER person for each location frequented (home, 2nd home, relative’s home, childcare, office, etc.) is our recommendation. Potassium Iodide tablets should be immediately available in the event of a nuclear radiation emergency. To be most effective, the first dose should be taken no later than 2-3 hours prior to potential exposure to radioactive iodine (as directed by public health officials). Then, one dose every day (same time) until your family has evacuated to an uncontaminated area, and then stop taking the tablets (as directed by public health officials). Any remaining tablets will still be foil-sealed and available for a future need.
