About potassium chloride

Potassium chloride use to treat or prevent low amounts of potassium in the blood. Potassium helps your cells, kidney pain, heart, muscles, and nerves work properly. A potassium pill for cramps is also used. Potassium levels in the blood are important. Most people get enough potassium by eating a well-balanced diet. Some conditions that can lower your body’s potassium level include severe prolonged diarrhea and vomiting, hormone problems such as hyperaldosteronism, or treatment with “water pills”/diuretics.

potassium levels

What are safe or normal potassium levels? The typical potassium levels for an adult falls between 3.5 and 5.0 millimoles per liter (mmol/L). Hyperkalemia occurs when levels go above 5.5 mmol/L. A reading above 6.5 mmol/L can cause heart problems that require immediate medical attention.

  • Do not lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking this medication.
  • Do not crush, chew, or suck on the tablets.
  • Doing so can release all of the drugs at once, increasing the risk of side effects.

After the tablet dissolves (about 2 minutes), stir the mixture for 30 seconds then drink all the liquid. Add one more ounce (30 milliliters) of water to the glass, swirl, and drink. Repeat one more time to make sure you are getting all of the drugs. Use only water for mixing, and do not prepare the mixture ahead of time. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.
