Calculating Number of MG’s of Iodine and Iodide per Drop of Lugol’s Solution 5%: Each VERTICAL “metric” drop (= 1/20 ml) is approximately 2.5 mg of iodine and 5 mg of potassium iodide. The Iodide portion of Potassium Iodide is about 75% so that is 3.75 mg. Therefore the total Iodine plus Iodide is 2.5 + 3.75 = 6.25 mg and 2 drops is about 12.50 mg’s of iodine/iodide (5.0 mg iodine, 7.50 mg iodide). Compared to iodine and potassium iodide tablets, J.CROW’S® Lugol’s Solution offers big savings.
