Availability of Iodine Tablets in Ireland

Print Printer-friendly version

Due to the on-going nuclear crisis in Japan, we have seen an increasing number of requests for iodine tablets in Irish pharmacies. None of the potassium iodide tablets are licenced for use in Ireland and are therefore not readily available, either over the counter or on prescription.

If you wish to purchase Iodine tablets (i.e. Jodetten) you will first need to see your GP, who will issue you with a prescription. You should then take the prescription to your local pharmacy, where they will order the tablets for you.

Due to the unlicensed nature of these tablets, it is unlikely that the pharmacy will have them in stock and it could take anything between 7 and 9 business days for them to come in. You should expect to pay around €17 for a packet of 100.
