Use:

Potassium Iodide is the first "Radiation Protective" or Thyroid Blocking" agent to be used by the public. Its active ingredient, 65mg of potassium iodide (KI), gives virtually complete protection from the most feared consequence of a nuclear accident - a meltdown and release of radioactive iodine into the environment. . 

Take potassium iodide (KI) only when helath officials tell you. In a nuclear radiation emergency, radioactive iodine could be released into the air. KI protects only the thyroidgland from uptake of radioactive iodine. Therefore, KI should be used along with other emergency measures that will be recommended to you by Health officials. If you are told to take this medicine, take it once a day in 24 hours. Do not take it more often. More KI will not help you. Too much KI may increase the chances of side effects. Do not take this medicine if you know you are allergic to iodine.
