I am replete with selenium and I want to take about 1 mg iodine in potassium iodide. For convenience??? sake I want to take it in a single tablet but I haven???t been able to find such a product. The products I have found offer either a fraction of 1mg per tablet or it???s at the other end of the spectrum with Iodoral???s 12.5mg tablets. Can anyone point me to a potassium iodide tablet that gives about 1mg iodine, from a reputable company?

I know you said you want a tablet, but my first thought on this would be to go to an independent pharmacist and ask if they can mix you a dilute solution of SSKI.

At the dosages of iodine you seek, you are more likely to be able to find kelp supplements and take 2-4 tablets/capsules to reach the desired amount.
I'm under the assumption that most potassium iodide is meant for helping radiation exposure, which is why it's such a high dose.
Kelp has its issues too - like many from-natural-source supplements, true dose can vary. I happen to use VitaminShoppe brand, as it was very inexpensive and seemed reasonable.
So, if its iodine you seek, go with kelp (even with its faults), but if it's true potassium iodide you seek, you may need to do more searching.
