Pharmacological action

Yoda solution spirit (on Latin — Solutionis Iodi spirituosae) has antiseptic, local irritative and antiinflammatory effects.

Iodine crystal renders the antimicrobic, distracting, antiseptic and hypolipidemic action.

Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

What is Iodine?

Iodine (MNN: Iodine + [Potassium iodide + Ethanol]) is the firm, having molecular crystal lattice, substance. Represents black-gray color with a violet shade crystals (or plates) with a characteristic smell.

At easy heating it is sublimated (sublimation of iodine is a transition of substance from a firm state in gaseous), letuch.

Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetic parameters

Substance is characterized by ability to form iodamines. The absorbed part is distributed in bodies and fabrics, selectively absorbed by ShchZh (thyroid gland).

Substance with kidneys (the main part), and also intestines, milk and sweat glands is emitted.

Shows the cauterizing and tanning properties, has bactericidal effect. Irritates receptors mucous and skin. Takes part in synthesis of a tirotoksin (ShchZh main hormone), favorably affecting at the same time a protein and lipidic metabolism (reduces concentration of LPNP and cholesterol), strengthens processes of metabolic disintegration (dissimilation).

Indications to use

Spirit solution is applied as an antiseptic agent and a revellent at infectious and inflammatory diseases of an integument and mucous membranes, to prevention of infection of insignificant injuries of skin, to reduction of inflammatory processes at neuralgia and miozita (has the distracting effect), to processing of edges of wounds, fingers of the surgeon and a surgery field.

Also means can be used at the following indications:


Contraindication to use of solution is hypersensitivity to iodine. Means should not be used for processing of trophic and diabetic ulcers.

Side effects

Side effects of iodine and drugs of iodine carry the name an iodism. They are shown in the form of the damage of mucous membranes strengthened salivary and/or dacryagogues, skin rash, bronkho-and rhinorrheas, small tortoiseshells, frustration of the alimentary system, contact dermatitis, a Quincke's edema.

At especially sensitive to I people the indisposition and the increased temperature are added to the listed phenomena, metal taste in a mouth appears.

The most frequent skin manifestations — iodide eels who have an appearance disseminated through a face and a trunk of papulo-pustular rashes.

The I toksikodermiya (yododerma) connected with intolerance which is shown in the form of purpura, blisters, an erythema, vegetans nodes or bubbles can sometimes develop.

How the allergy to substance is shown?

The allergy to Iodine is one of kinds of medicinal intolerance. As a rule, toxic influence of iodine is caused by chronic diseases of internals or overdose of iodinated means. More rare it is connected with an individual idiosyncrasy.

Iodine belongs to family of halogens which are not capable to be true allergens. However it is necessary to remember that being hapten, substance gains molar weight due to the high-molecular proteinaceous connections which are in blood of the person.

The antigenic complex which is formed as a result of reaction of substance with fabric proteins (antibodies) just is also the reason of allergic reaction and a sensitization.

Symptoms of an allergy differ depending on a way of receipt of an element to a human body.

At external use displays of allergic dermatitis are possible: reddening, an itch, burning, hypostasis of fabrics on a site of putting solution, sometimes — pain.

At reception of iodinated drugs inside there is a rash reminding the small tortoiseshell which is followed by an itch and burning.

In more hard cases the Quincke's edema develops and breath is broken (if hypostasis extends from a face to a throat). At intravenous administration of drugs of iodine the bronchospasm and an acute anaphylaxis were fixed.

Continuation of contact with substance despite an allergy promotes strengthening of its manifestations.

Application instruction Yoda (Way and dosage)

The instruction on solution of Iodine spirit

At external use moisten with solution a cotton plug which is used for processing of the injured skin.

Inside Iodine is accepted after food, previously having dissolved in milk. The dose is selected individually depending on indications.

For treatment of atherosclerosis by the adult appoint reception of 10-12 drops of solution of 3 rubles/days. In the preventive purposes drug is accepted by 2-3 rubles/year courses for 30 days in the dose varying ranging from 1 to 10 drops.

At tertiary syphilis accept till 5-50 drops 2-3 rubles/days.

Upper admissible limit of a single dose — 20, daily — 60 drops.

Children can accept solution inside from five-year age. A single dose — 3-5, daily — 6-15 drops.

The grid from iodine is an effective remedy from bruises, bruises, a SARS, quinsy, flu, bronchial asthma, obstructive bronchitis, tracheitises, laryngitis. Its drawing is reasonable also at a mialgiya, injury of ligaments, arthritises and arthroses, lumbosacral radiculitis, backbone osteochondrosis.

Getting through skin into deep fabrics and blood, solution with drug has local irritative effect, activates blood circulation, removes an inflammation and puffiness of fabrics. When putting solution on skin does not cause system effects that does safe its use for patients is more senior than one-year-old age (in the absence of an allergy to I).

Eye drops of Potassium iodide — 2% solution in bottles droppers are applied to treatment of ophthalmologic diseases.

Indications to appointment are: a fungal keratitis and conjunctivitis (supportive application), atherosclerotic and miopichesky changes of a choroid of an eyeglobe and vessels of a retina, the atrophy of an optic nerve, hemorrhage connected with syphilis in a crystalline lens, a phacoscotasmus.

At infectious and inflammatory (acute or chronic) vagina diseases, and also for prevention of infectious and inflammatory complications after gynecologic operations drug Yodoksid — vaginal candles about povidone-iodine is used.

Radioiodine for treatment of diseases of a thyroid gland

In Wikipedia it is specified that iodine-131 (radio iodine) is a radioactive nuclide of iodine with mass number 131 and atomic number 53 which is applied to treatment of diseases of ShchZh with a hyperthyroidism syndrome (first of all, DTZ — a diffusion toxic craw).

The preference is even more often given in the majority of the countries of the world to a cancer therapy of ShchZh and Greyvs's illness by iodine-131 (in the USA it is received by from 70 to 90% of sick DTZ). Higher performance of a method in comparison with conservative therapy by Thiamazolum (mercazolil), and also lack of such dangerous side effects as reactions of hypersensitivity and an agranulocytosis is the reasons of it.

I-131 accept inside in the form of capsules. At the same time to the patient, as a rule, rather single dose of drug. The radioiodine selectively collects in ShchZh fabrics that is caused by high capture of ShchZh iodine at DTZ.

At disintegration of I-131 also γ-radiation is formed β-.......... γ-radiation gives beam load of fabrics, sensitive to it (first of all on gonads) which is comparable to loading when carrying out in urography.

β-beams are not capable to get further integuments because of what do not pose any threat for people around; beams of this type cause a radiation inflammation of ShchZh from the outcome in fibrosis.

At the same time function of body decreases (is irreversible) up to development of a hypothyroidism that is the expected result of treatment.

Treatment of DTZ a radioiodine is discussed at forums very actively. As doctors (and it is confirmed by statistical data) speak, by the end of the first month the thyrotoxicosis develops approximately at a third of patients. In general the thyroid status quickly changes within the first three months, further rates are significantly slowed down.

Most often patients cannot decide on diseases of ShchZh, where to pass treatment by a radioiodine — in Obninsk or Nizhny Novgorod.

About effects of treatment of a thyroid gland in Nizhny Novgorod in the majority good. There is information that according to the statistics in clinic after passing of therapy no more than 6-8% of patients return.

In Obninsk, according to the people passing treatment, the cost of procedures is much higher, and the percent of the returning patients is more.

As an alternative doctors quite often advise the Russian medical institutions clinic in Tartu. One and all About treatment by a radioiodine in Estonia positive. The patients undergoing procedure note simplicity of treatment, lack of by-effects, and also attentiveness of personnel and the good organization of treatment.

Iodine and soda from the milkwoman

The instruction on Iodine monochlorated

Iodine monochlorated is a veterinary drug which is used for the treatment cutting depriving, antiseptic processing of an udder of milch animals, forced and preventive disinfection of rooms.

Concentration and route of administration of solution are selected depending on indications.

So, for example, after milking by means of the sprayer apply 10% on an udder of cows the drug solution on triethylene glycol and cutting deprive treat, putting with a wadded and gauze tampon or a brush 10% solution on triethylene glycol or 10% aqueous solution.

Use of drugs I for rabbits is reasonable at an intestinal and hepatic coccidiosis (to pregnant females give 0,1%, and to krolchata — 0,2% solution I).

Aerosol processing of air in rooms where there are patients with respiratory diseases animals or a bird, carry out by means of exothermic sublimation of vapors chlorine - and iodaluminium which are formed when connect monochlorated iodine to aluminum (for example, with pieces of the rejected products of aluminum or aluminum shaving).


Overdose symptoms at steam inhalation of I: a laryngospasm, a burn of upper respiratory tracts, an aseptic inflammation of mucous membranes in places of release of substance (okolonosovy bosoms, sialadens, respiratory tracts).

Poisoning symptoms at reception of strong solution inside: erythrocytolysis, severe burns of the digestive channel, haemoglobinuria.

The dose equal of 3 g is deadly.

Elementary I is very much toxic. Poisoning is shown by it in the form of severe pains in a stomach, vomitings and diarrheas. Shock from irritation of a large number of nerve terminations is a cause of death.

In conditions of production influence of vapors I causes dacryagogue, cough, swelling of parotid glands, conjunctivitis, a sonitus, headaches, dizziness. Owing to chronic intoxication the general disorder of food and Qatar of mucous membranes develop.

Surplus symptoms Yoda in an organism

The standard daily rate of I varies ranging from 100 to 200 mkg.

Surplus symptoms in an organism are noted at a hyperthyroidism when the general level I sharply increases in a human body. At the same time are possible: increase in ShchZh, development of a bazedovy illness with a craw, tachycardia and exophthalmos, tendency to diarrhea, emaciation, muscular weakness, irritability, perspiration.

At the person standard metabolism amplifies, dystrophic changes of skin and its appendages, a hyperthermia, early canities, an atrophy of muscles, vitiligo are observed (disturbance of a xanthopathy on limited sites).

How to bring excess of substance out of an organism?

Treatment of poisoning of I means use of antishock therapy, and also the therapy directed to recovery of balance of water and electrolytes.

Recommendations how to bring iodine out of an organism, differ depending on the ShchZh function.

At hypofunction of body the ShchZh hormones normalizing a metabolism are applied. At hyperfunction of body (if it is not enough drug withdrawal for self-recovery of an organism) can be applied:

  • thyreostatic (and if it is required, intensive) therapy;
  • plasma exchange;
  • thyroidectomy.

Symptoms of a lack of Iodine of an organism

Symptoms of shortage of iodine in an organism arise against decrease in receipt of this element with water and food, and also at people with the ShchZh reduced function.

Signs of a lack of an organism:

  • drowsiness, fast fatigue, chronic fatigue;
  • decrease in reaction, memory impairment, bad resistance to stress;
  • xeroderma, stratification of nails, fragility and hair loss;
  • anemia, increase in weight, frequent colds, puffiness, a chill;
  • frustration of reproductive system;
  • cholelithiasis;
  • locks.

At sharp hypofunction or full removal of ShchZh the myxedema which signs are develops: joint pains, puffiness of the person, relative deafness, a thickening mucous, a voice hoarseness, drowsiness, feeling of "crawling of goosebumps" on a body, a hypophrasia, baldness.

At children the lack of iodine leads to sharp change of all structure of a body: at the child the expressed delay of intellectual and physical development is noted.


Substance pharmaceutical is incompatible with ammonia solutions, essential oils and amidomercury chloride (at interaction explosive mix is formed).

At simultaneous use with the means containing organic compounds for external use the denaturation of proteinaceous components is possible.

Weakens goitrogenic and hypothyroid effect of the drugs Li (lithium).

Iodine and starch

One of properties of starch is ability to be painted in blue color at interaction with substance I. To see effect of iodine on starch, it is possible to drip solution on a slice of bread or a cut of a potato.

If to add solution of iodine to starch solution, blue coloring will appear. When heating blue solution gradually becomes colourless, when cooling its color is recovered.

The equation of reaction of starch with iodine looks so: I2 + (C6H10O5) of n => I2*(C6H10O5)n

Terms of sale

Without recipe.

Storage conditions

Bottles have to be stored in the svetozashchishchenny place at a temperature not above 15 °C.

Period of validity

Three years.

Special instructions

Chemical element belongs to group of halogens. Its molar weight — 126,90447 (3) a.e.m. (g/mol). Structure of a crystal lattice — orthorhombic.

In the Pharmacopoeia the following drugs are listed: solution of spirit 5% and solution of spirit 10%.

Physical properties

Substance is among nonmetals. Dry iodine firm, has an appearance of crystals of dark-violet or black-gray color. There is a specific smell. Couples are painted in characteristic violet color.

When heating substance with an atmospheric pressure, it sublimates, turning into couples and when it is cooled, passing a liquid state, turns into crystals. Liquid substance is received by heating under pressure.

It is badly dissolved in water, it is good — in organic solvents, carbon sulfur, aqueous solutions of iodides.

What temperature of melting Yoda?

Substance melting temperature — 113,5 °C.

Other thermodynamic properties of substance:

  • boiling temperature — 184,35 °C;
  • warmth of evaporation — 41,95 kJ/mol;
  • warmth of melting — 15,52 kJ/mol;
  • heat conductivity (300 K) — 0,45 W / (m • J);
  • density (at N at.) — 4,93 g/cm ³.

Chemical properties

The element which is contained in the nature consists only of one isotope (I-127). In connections the following oxidation levels are shown: −1, 0, +1, +3, +5 and +7 (valencies — I, III, V, VII). Is halogen. On activity concedes to bromine and chlorine.

Electronic formula of iodine: 1s22s22p63s23p63d104s24p64d105s25p5.

Vigorously interacts with metals, forming at the same time iodides. So, for example, as a result of reaction of substance with aluminum in which as the catalyst the water drop is used heat is allocated, but not reacted I it heats up and sublimated, forming at the same time couples of violet color.

It is capable to form a number of acids: iodide, iodic, iodic, hypoiodous, yodovodorodny. Is weaker in comparison with bromine, chlorine, fluorine an oxidizer.

At dissolution partially reacts with water. With hydrogen reacts not completely and only when heating.

What do I of?

Ways of receiving iodine:

  • processing of algas;
  • processing of production wastes of saltpeter;
  • production from natural iodinated solutions;
  • ionite way.

Iodine comes to environment from sea water.

Security measures when using spirit solution

It is necessary to use with care drug for processing of mucous membranes as the alcohol which is contained in solution can provoke strong irritation and a burn.

Not to allow hit of solution on mucous an eye.

Extra care is recommended to be observed at use of means for fair-haired patients.

Because of risk of development of a burn it is not necessary to use drug for processing of extensive body surfaces.

Whether it is possible to burn skin solution of Iodine and what to do at a burn?

Spirit solution is very available antiseptic agent. However, in spite of the fact that the bottle with dark liquid is in each house, quite often the people who faced need to disinfect the injured skin ask questionswhether "it is possible to smear a wound with iodine? whether" and "it will become the burn reason?".

Doctors say that the burn iodine when using five-percent spirit solution is not a rarity. There is it at disturbance of recommendations in the instruction which is attached to it (it is used for processing of open wounds, it is applied on mucous or extensive body parts, etc.).

Burn from Iodine on a photo

There is a number of recommendations, as well as than to treat a burn iodine in house conditions. At corrosive burns necessary measures have to be taken in the shortest possible time. It will allow to stop impact of substance on skin.

If burn is got just, washing off requires 10 minutes if passed Bol 20 minutes — at least half an hour.

After washing leather is processed a corrective: solution of sugar of 20% or soap water. Then the burned place is powdered with chalk or a denture powder. Good results are yielded also by use of sea-buckthorn oil.

Also councils meet how to treat a burn for iodine Herculean porridge. Such mask is effective at strong damages of skin. It is necessary to impose it directly on a site of the burned skin.

The burn allows to accelerate healing, to disinfect and anesthetize use of an aerosol Panthenol.

Advantage and harm Yoda: than it is useful to an organism and what can constitute danger?

It is an element which deficit affects first of all a condition of ShchZh. He participates in synthesis of a tirotoksin — the I-containing ShchZh hormone which actively influences function of all bodies and a metabolism. At its deficit the organism cannot normally grow and develop, intellectual activity decreases.

Iodine is necessary for hair, teeth, nails, skin. If it arrives in insufficient quantity, hair become fragile and begin to drop out strongly, skin — dim and dry, nails fragile.

However not less dangerous, than deficit, for an organism is also its surplus. Abuse of drugs of iodine and a diet at which there are products with the high content of this element can become the reason of dysfunctions of ShchZh and hormonal failures.

It is necessary to remember that norm in days for the adult — 1-2 mkg/kg (that is about 120-150 mkg/days). To pregnant women and the feeding women this dose is increased by 25-50 mkg.

The products containing Iodine: in what products Yoda and where the minimum quantity Yoda contains in products is a lot of?

It is very important to the people having problems with ShchZh to know where iodine and where it is few of it most of all contains.

Content of iodine in food stuffs depends on that, the soil and plants on fields on which animals are grazed is how saturated with this element, and also from what forages are used for bringing up farm animals and a bird.

So, for example, fish who is grown up on special sterns in farms is a product with high content of iodine if to compare her to the fish living in the wild nature.

Products with the high content of iodine are first of all seafood (sea fish, a laminaria, shrimps, oysters).

What contains still iodine? In the baked breast of a turkey, boiled eggs, milk, natural yogurt, cheddar cheese, the Himalaya salt, sea beans, white loaf. The teaspoon of iodized salt contains 400 mkg of substance.

What vegetables and fruit contain iodine? In the baked potatoes, a cranberry, bananas, a persimmon, green beans, tinned corn, strawberry.
