I just found out my husband has been taking J.CROW'S® Lugol's Solution of Iodine 2%. It didn't have a dose on the bottle so he's just been squirting it into his drink in the morning--1/2 a dropper or so--whatever comes up I guess. He's been doing that for a month. Does he need to see a doctor?

If he feels fine, I would just stop taking it, and drink lots of water of the next few days to flush it out of his system. You could always call poison control, if you are worried about overdose.
