Hi Mike,

Are you referring to Penicillin V Potassium? If so, itching is listed as a severe side effect that you should let your doctor know about as soon as possible. It may be that you're experiencing an allergic reaction to the drug.

The "itching" side effect is listed in the link below:

Please post back if there's anything else I can help with!

To David, I am talking about the potassium that's lost when you have to take Lasix every day.When I take the potassium it seems to make me itch like crazy.

David Says:

From what I could gather, mild itching is a less-serious side effect of Lasix. However, itching is also listed as an allergic reaction to potassium chloride, according to medicinenet.

If you're only experiencing the itch after taking the potassium, then it's sure to be due to one or more of the binders/fillers in the each tablet. You may have to consider switching to another manufacturer (brand) to get pills with a different set of 'inactive' ingredients.

I hope this helps in anyway!

I take one Potassium tablet each day along with another pill called Pantoprazole, I have asked my Doctor about mixing the two and he said it should have no side effects, but I have been experiencing a lot of itching and no sleep. Is this common?
