Radio Iodine Treatment

Has anybody had Radio Iodine Therapy? I am due to have this done on Friday 11/11. Just wondering if there were any immediate side effects within the first 48 hours after taking the tablet. Thanks

    I had no immediate adverse effects. Dry mouth is a typical side effect so take boiled sweets and drinks with you.

  • No immediate effects for me. Took approximately three months before I was diagnosed as being under active. This took place more than twenty years ago, and luckily I have been generally fine on levothyroxine. Good Luck!

  • Thank you, feeling more positive now x
