Potassium is essential for the proper functioning of the heart, kidneys, muscles, nerves, and digestive system. Usually the food you eat supplies all of the potassium you need. However, certain diseases and drugs, especially diuretics (‘water pills’), remove potassium from the body. Potassium supplements are taken to replace potassium losses and prevent potassium deficiency.

Uses and Dosage

Potassium is available in various forms, including oral liquid, powder, granules, effervescent tablets, regular tablets, extended-release (long-acting) tablets, and extended-release capsules. Typically, it is recommended to be taken two to four times a day, either with or immediately after meals.

Adhere to the prescribed directions for potassium intake, avoiding deviations such as taking more or less than instructed or consuming it more frequently than recommended by your doctor.

Always take potassium with a full glass of water or fruit juice.

For liquid forms, mix them with water. Dissolve powder, granules, or effervescent tablets in cold water or fruit juice as per the manufacturer’s guidelines or the directions provided on your prescription label. Ensure thorough mixing just before consumption, as cold liquids can help mask any unpleasant taste.

Extended-release tablets and capsules should be swallowed whole; avoid chewing or dissolving them in your mouth.

  • Due to rare reports of stomach/intestinal ulcers and bleeding with sustained-release potassium products, taking a liquid form of potassium is preferred. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have throat/stomach/intestinal problems such as blockage, narrowing, or ulcers.
