This medication is used to protect the thyroid gland after radioactive iodine treatment or during medical scans using radioisotopes such as MIBG scans. The medication works by blocking the thyroid gland from absorbing the radioactive iodine into the thyroid.
This medication may also be used to prepare the thyroid gland for surgical removal, and to treat certain overactive thyroid conditions (e.g. hyperthyroidism, thyroid storm).
