how long does it take for Iodoral to work
Were you confirmed to be iodone deficient? If you are not iodine deficient, then adding iodine will likely do nothing.

My experience was that I tried supplementing with Kelp, early on in my quest to feel better, hoping that the iodine rich supplement woudl help me feel better. IT ended up making me crash, hard, instead.

If you are iodine deficient, and supplement with iodine, then it should help symptoms START to disisapate over the course of several weeks.

If you are not iodine deficient, you may experience some hyperthyroidism, in some cases.

If you are not iodine deficient, but you are selenium deficient, then taking iodine without also supplementing Selenium coudl cause a crash, as I experienced.

To be safe, I would think that Selenium and Iodine might be better taken together, and in moderation. (Selenium i soften recommended up to 200mcg a day for a short while for women, then cut back to half that for maintenance. Men need more selenium and may find benefit from staying at the higher dose in some cases.) Regardless, allow several weeks for symptoms to start to lift.

I have noticed that I am gaining weight especially over the past week, also my appetite is increasing.... is something maybe telling me I'm taking too much. I have not been diagnosed iodine deficiant... just that my thyroid is a little off and that they can't assist with it. I was hoping this would help with my symptoms. Any insight on if the pill could be the weight gain cause.
IT is hard to say. I suppose it is possible, but I don't have the experience, nor have I read up on that, much. Iodine deficiency is fairly rare in most developed countries, so supplementation is rarely needed.

My guess is that you might do well to add some Selenium or lose the iodine and try the Selenium alone, but this is only based on my own experience.
Thank you for your help!
