Recipe Correction There were two errors in Wednesday's recipe story entitled “White Sugar Missing from These Sweets”, page BC. In the recipe for “Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies" it should have read 2/3 cup butter or margarine instead of 1/3 cup “Caramel Chews” requires only 1/3 cup of semisweet chocolate pieces, rather than the 2/3 cup called for in the recipe.

LAFF • A - DAY “I really don't want much for Christmas this year—just a couple of credit cards' ON THIS DATE in 1957, the European Nuclear Energy Agency was inaugurated. By Dr. S.L. AndHman Many medicines taken in this country are prescription drugs — that is, they’re selected especially for the patient by a physician. Don’t expect to receive medicine every time you see your doctor; often he won’t find it necessary to prescribe any. However, when you do receive a prescription, bi* sure you have the answers to these questions: — What is the name of the drug.' Write it down for your own records. You may need to refer to it later. — When and how often should it be taken? Fellow Directions If, for example, your doctor tells you to take the drug three times a day, be sure to note whether it should be taken before or after meals. It could make a difference. Some drugs cause upset when taken on an empty stomach. Others should be taken only on an empty stomach. — (’an the least expensive form of the medicine be prescribed? Often the doctor can write the prescription by using the generic or official name of the medicine rather than a specific brand name. This may save you money at the pharmacy. He may, however, prefer to prescribe the brand-name drug which has worked best in his experience. Reactions — ('an the new medicine be taken along with others? lf you’re taking other medicines, let your doctor know. — What reactions may I expect? In some people, medicines may cause drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, nervousness or other reactions — What precautions should I take 9 For example, if the expected reaction to a medicine is drowsiness, dizziness or unsteadiness, you shouldn’t drive or operate machinery. — (’an this prescription be refilled? lf the medicine is to be taken frequently, ask if you can refill the prescription as needed The doctor may want you to check with him by phone or come in before continuing the medication. He may allow refills but only a specified number. — Must I finish the bottle? Before you leave the doctor, be sure he has told you how long to take the medicine and whether to check with him within a certain time. Once you leave the doctor’s office, it’s your responsibility to have the prescription filled and use the medicine according to the doctor’s instructions. ★ WA Dr. Andelman welcome* letters outlining problems he may discuss in future columns. Ile regrets, however, he cannot personally answer mail.
