I've osteoarthritis and an allergy to iodine and cannot take any medication with povidone.
Hmm. I read this and my heart sank: https://www.drugs.com/inactive/povidone-169.html So it's the white common 'inactive' ingredient binding agent.
That is a problem as you will have to go through the FDA monographs to look at the inactive filler ingredients (you will find them here) but there are many manufacturers so someone hopefully one uses a different binding agent.
Good luck. :(
