    Hi Dr Guttler
    I am allergic to iodine since taking entroviaform in Canada for gastric back in 1974. My Dr said I have Graves Desease.
    So now I am going to start “Agomelatine” Valdoxan antidepressant with the Inactive Ingredient “Povidone”. I am hoping this won’t be a problem. If you don’t answer that’s ok as I will visit my Pharmacist. I would appreciate your comment though Thank You. Bronwyn Amos

      If you have Graves disease taking iodine may be a problem.
