Taking Medicine, Flood Insurance, Energy Savings

GUIDE TO TAKING MEDICINE
Sorting through medication labels and managing both over-the-counter and prescription drugs can be very confusing. That's why the Federal Citizen Information Center and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Office of Women's Health have put together the Guide to Taking Medicine, a free package of publications that will help you better understand what you need to know before you take any medication.

When you see your doctor, it can be hard to know what to ask about medicines you're already taking or those being prescribed. Use the fact sheets in the Guide to Taking Medicine package for a list of essential questions. The package also explains how to read prescription medication labels and spot red flags you should follow up on. For example, is your medicine an antibiotic? It's important to know that antibiotics work differently than other drugs.

The Guide to Taking Medicine package explains these differences and lets you know what illnesses antibiotics can treat, what they can't treat, and how to use them properly.

There is plenty you can do to take care of your body in addition to chicken soup and the right medication. You may benefit from taking a dietary supplement on a daily basis. The Guide to Taking Medicine package explains the function of vitamins and what you need to consider before you take them with any other medications.

Don't let reading medicine labels, managing your prescription and over-the-counter medications, or taking dietary supplements be a confusing experience. Use the free Guide to Taking Medicine package so you can stay in control of the medications and supplements you're taking.

NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE GUIDE
Did you know that floods are the #1 natural hazard in the United States, occurring in all fifty states, and that homeowner's insurance doesn't cover flood damage? Order the National Flood Insurance Guide to find out what flood insurance backed by the federal government covers and how much coverage is available. Flood insurance averages about $1 per day, and there's usually a 30-day waiting period before your coverage is effective. Be sure to protect your home before disaster strikes by ordering the free National Flood Insurance Guide from the Federal Emergency Management
