For thyroid blocking in a radiation emergency.

IOSAT Potassium Iodide Tablets is the first "Radiation Protective Thyroid Blocking" agent to be sold directly to the general public. Its active ingredient, 130 mg. 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.

DESCRIPTION: Each white, round, cross-scored—the name IOSAT stamped on one side—tablet contains 130 mg of potassium iodide.

INDICATIONS: IOSAT (Potassium iodide tablet, USP) is a thyroid blocking medicine that is used in a nuclear radiation emergency only.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Use only as directed by public officials if a nuclear radiation emergency happens.

To take the tablet in liquid solution, use dosing directions under Making a Potassium Iodide Liquid Mixture.
Take KI every day (every 24 hours) as directed by public officials.
Do not take more than 1 dose in 24 hours. More will not help you.
Too much medicine may increase the chances of side effects.

Making a Potassium Iodide Liquid Mixture:
1. Put one 130 mg KI tablet into a small bowl and grind it into a fine powder using the back of a metal teaspoon against the inside of the bowl. The powder should not have any large pieces. 2. Add 4 teaspoonfuls of water to the crushed KI powder in the bowl and mix until the KI powder is dissolved in the water.
3. Take the KI water mixture solution made in step 2 and mix it with 4 teaspoonfuls of low fat white or chocolate milk, orange juice, flat soda, raspberry syrup, or infant formula.
4. The KI liquid mixture will keep for up to 7 days in the refrigerator. It is recommended that the KI liquid mixtures be prepared weekly. Throw away unused portions.

Important:  Please follow instructions included in the product insert.

 

Take potassium iodide (KI) only when public officials tell you. In a nuclear radiation emergency, radioactive iodine could be released into the air. KI protects only the thyroid gland from uptake of radioactive iodine. Therefore, KI should be used along with other emergency measures that will be recommended to you by public officials. 
If you are told to take this medicine, take it 1 time every 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
