It was first isolated from potash, the ashes of plants, from which its name derives. In the periodic table, potassium is one of the alkali metals, all of which hav...

potassium chloride 5 mg equivalent

How much mEq would equal 5 mg of potassium? There was a problem with my 12 year old's rx from the dr. He is on it to prevent kidney stones and cant pick it up till like June. I was wondering until then what do i do with the mEq over the counter? ## 5mgs of Potassium converts to 0.128 mEq according to this converter. What was the problem with the Rx that is delaying your being able to pick it up? That doesn't make sense, if there are issues, they should be able to contact his doctor for a solution.

Just started on this new drug

I just started this new drug 5 days ago and will try and let everyone know how I do along the way. I have stage 3 ckd with my number of potassium at 5.5. I had been taking Kiotex and it wasn't solving my problem, so my doctor decided to put me on this. Seeing that I am the first one on this forum bothers me....but hoping others will start to respond and we can track each other's progress with this new drug. ## How are you doing on the Patiromer? This medication is used to treat high blood potassium, since that can be just as dangerous as it being too low. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including constipation, abdominal pain, low blood magnesium, and nausea.

yellow round pill with 903 on one side

I found one of these round bright yellow coated pills. It's a bit smaller than a dime. Imprint 903, no mistaking it for any other numbers. No imprint on the other side. Kind of thick. Very curious about what it is? Potassium Chloride Er 10 Meq? ## In my investigation, Potassium Chloride Er 10 Meq has a different pill description altogether. For verification, you can click on the following National Drug Code link [0245-0041] to view a photo and more specific details. Whereabouts did you find this tablet? And is there any reason to believe that it may still contain Potassium Chloride? I'm guess I'm just wondering what made you think that this is what it was, as I'm not able to locate any information on this pill imprint. Does anyone else here recognize this as being someth...

KlorCon M10 ER

Can anyone tell me how many mgs are in the KlorCon M10 ER tablet? I am trying to compare it to the 1500 mg in a Pot Chlor ER tablet 20meq. ## The Klor-Con M10 ER is listed as being equivalent to 750mgs, or 10meqs, so it's half the dosage of the one you are comparing it to. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Is there another potassium medication like "Klor con m10 er meq" that doesn't have polyethylene glycol in it?
