Based on my research, SSKI (Potassium Iodide Oral Solution, USP) is a saturated solution of potassium iodide containing 1 gram of potassium iodide per ml.

Although I've also read about Potassium Iodide used for radiation treatment/prevention, this particular medication is indicated for use as an 'expectorant' in the symptomatic treatment of chronic pulmonary diseases where tenacious mucus complicates the problem, including bronchial asthma, bronchitis and pulmonary emphysema.

The prescribing information states that "it may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor." So I would suggest bringing up the topic of radiation with your doctor if that's going to be your primary reason for it's use.

I was able to find numerous articles of information on the benefits of supplementing Sski under the following google search "benefits of potassium iodide".

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Potassium Iodide Details

I hope this helps!
