It is just a Potassium nutritional supplement, which is often given to those that have a deficiency in it. It is pretty potent and may cause some nausea and stomach irritation, so it's best to take it with food.


Is there anything else I can help with?

Theresa, some diuretics that are used to reduce the amount of fluid in the body can cause loss of potassium, so supplementing it might be necessary.

However, this shouldn't be taken, unless your doctor specifically instructs you to do so. Too much potassium can be just as dangerous as not having enough of it and there is a class of medications called potassium sparing diuretics, they actually help add it back to the body, so combining those with a supplement can put you in danger of having your levels go to high.


Are there any other comments or questions?
