Potassium chloride serves as a mineral supplement and is administered to mitigate or forestall a potassium deficiency in the bloodstream. Adequate levels of potassium in the bloodstream play a crucial role in maintaining cellular, renal, cardiac, muscular, and neural functioning. Generally, a balanced diet suffices to meet the body’s potassium requirements.

However, certain medical conditions, such as hyperaldosteronism, or the use of diuretics, can reduce potassium levels in the body.

Uses and Dosage

Take this medication orally as directed by your doctor. To avoid stomach upset, consume each dose with a meal and a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. Refrain from lying down for at least 10 minutes after taking this medication.

Swallow the capsules or tablets whole. Do not crush or chew extended-release capsules or tablets, as doing so may result in the rapid release of the entire drug, increasing the risk of side effects.

If swallowing capsules is challenging, notify your doctor or pharmacist. Some brands may allow you to open the capsules and sprinkle the contents onto a spoonful of cool, soft food like applesauce or pudding. Immediately swallow the mixture without chewing. Avoid preparing the mixture in advance. Consume a glass of cool water after each dose to ensure the full ingestion of the medication. Consult your pharmacist if you have any inquiries regarding your specific brand.

Take this medication regularly to derive the maximum benefit. To aid in remembering, take it at the same time(s) each day.

Dosage is determined based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

Do not exceed the prescribed dose or take it more frequently than instructed. Refrain from taking more than 20 milliequivalents per dose.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or if you experience symptoms of low potassium in the blood, such as irregular heartbeat, muscle weakness, or cramps.
