Klor-Con Overview

Potassium chloride (KCl) is a metal halide salt composed of potassium and chloride. It is odorless and has a white or colorless vitreous crystal appearance. The solid dissolves readily in water and its solutions have a salt-like taste. KCl is used as a fertilizer,[6] in medicine, scientific applications, food processing, and used to cause cardiac arrest as the third drug in the "three drug cocktail" for executions by lethal injection. It occurs naturally as the mineral sylvite and in combinat...

Con you tell me how many bananas I have to eat to get the same amount of potassium as one klor-con m20 tab? ## Hello, Frank! How are you? From what I can find, they estimate approximately 1 mEq per inch of banana, so you'd need to eat 20 inches of banana for each tablet you are supposed to take. It would likely be easier to just take the tablets, rather than eating bananas all day, every day. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for the information. I was curious. That is a lot of bananas especially in light of the fact I'm not that crazy about bananas. The pill, though, is a bit hard to swallow. Again, thank you for the effort. ## A FAIRLY SMALL BANANA IS APPROX. SIX INCHES, SO 3 OR 4 BANANAS IS NOT ALL THAT MUCH. IT'S MUCH BETTER THAN THE PILL IN MY OPINION...

Replenishing Low Potassium Levels
2 Replies RSS
I've been taking Klor-Con 10 MEQ for 4 days. How long until you get back to a normal potassium range? Thank you ahead of time for your help. ## It is hard to say, it really depends on how low your level was and how your body responds to the supplement. Generally, when I had to take it, I showed improvement after about a week, but we are all different. The FDA warns that it can be very harsh on the stomach, so it should be taken with food, not on an empty stomach. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? ## Thank you Verwon for responding. I think I feel better. My leg muscles feel stronger. But I am still dizzy. This happened due to my banking position being displaced and went with a high paying / heavy industrial job with Corning. Its hot, I sweat (12 hr shifts) and I hav...

Knot-con choke

I choked on a pill this morning. I couldnt breathe in or out. I gave my self the hiemlich. First on our counter & then over my couch. Scared the crap outta my daughter & my dog. Since I love avocados, I was wondering if I could eat a bunch of those instead. ## You can try it, to see if it helps, as long as your doctor approves. Orange juice and oranges also contain a lot of potassium, according to the FDA and it seems they might be a lot safer for you. Potatoes can also be a great source. How low was your potassium? Are you on any other medications? ## yes, im on other medications. furosemide, spironolactone, a gerd medication & lactulose because im on a liver transplant list. im kind of limbo right now. my meld score is between 10 & 14

5 Replies RSS
I am currently prescibed klor-con m20 potassium supplements. I pay 100 dollars for 100 tablets. Is there any where I could find them less expensively. I have to take 3 a day ## Hello, Diane! How are you? The best suggestion I can make is to check with the various pharmacies in your area to compare prices. It seems this is one that's become somewhat expensive everywhere. Will your insurance cover it? Does anyone else have any ideas? This medication can cause stomach irritation, so it is best to take it with food. ## I ran out of my klor con m20 potassium tablets, is there any over the counter potassium tablets I can take in place of this? ## There are a couple kinds of dissolvable potassium available (by prescription). One is a powder in sealed packets and one is an effervescent tabl...

The emergency room dr prescribed me 20 of klor-con 20mg cause my potassium level was very low and i couldnt talk or move my body and my blood pressure was 160/100 and my pulse at 100 and i was tingling and numbness all over my body i couldnt even walk like i was paralized ## Hello, Tammy! How are you? I am so very sorry about what happened to you. Low potassium levels can be very dangerous and can cause many health issues, having levels that are too high can also be very dangerous. Potassium is something that must remain balanced between specific levels. In my case, my body does not store potassium, though we've never been able to figure out why, thus to keep mine up, my cardiologist has had to double up medications that can elevate my potassium levels. For most people, that could c...

Is Klor-con powder 20 mEq still safe to use past the expiration date? The date today is 1/22/17 and the date on the package is 9/16. ## Hello, Ginger! How are you? For maximum efficacy, it would be best to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription. The FDA warns that this medication can be very harsh on the stomach, so it should always be taken with food. Is there anything else I can help with?

## I had been taking POTASSIUM CL CAP 10MEQ ER. CVS Caremark recently re-filled the order and switched to POT CHLORIDE CAP 10 MEQ ER. They said it was less expensive and just as effective. I was not advised until after the switch was made. My question is what is the difference is these two Rxs? Thank you. ## There is no difference, just like they told you, it is exactly the same, the only change is they are made by different manufacturers. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## i was taking POT-chloride 10 Meg now my DOc change me to KLOR-con M20 whats the difference ## i take potassium and feel sick mostof the time what causes this ## Is there an equivalent OTC pill form medication for Klerk-con 10meq?
