Is Iodides Tincture the same as Tincture of Iodine?

Dr Mac and Sons recommends a quick dip in diluted saltwater with some Tincture of Iodine for new frags.

My pharmacy only has Iodides Tincure and I noticed it has 45% alcohol. Is this the same stuff?

Hi gonzalezcp!

I have used iodine tincture: 2% iodine, 47% alcohol. So I think what you got will do the trick. Sorry post so late, just came across it.
