Common Questions and Answers about Potassium chloride lethal dose


456906 tn?1208573431 Too much potassium can be bad for anybody...they actually use potassium chloride in HIGH concentration for lethal injection. They use the same thing in IV's in low doses to keep people hydrated in the hospital. Too much of anything can be bad. I think it would be VERY difficult to bring yourself to the point where you had too much potassium.
Avatar f tn For that Potassium Chloride should be used. 4) There are reports of low potassium, to lethal levels, due to high ingestion of licorice. 5) Licorice will elevate your blood pressure. 6) I do not know what problem you have with your adrenal glands (that could also be aggravated by licorice), but I do not think that Raw Adrenal Gland can be a solution. Think that every animal has a different gland and the amount of any active product there cannot be guarantee at all.
264156 tn?1206990594 The contractions of the heart are controlled by chemical (electrolytes- potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, chloride) impulses, which fire at a rate which controls the beat of the heart. The cells that create the impulses are called pacemaker cells. IST effects the Sinoatrial Node. The sinoatrial node (SA node) is responsible for the whole heart's beat and is made up of cardiac myocyte cells which is muscle fiber.
Avatar n tn Five days after I stopped them, I took a 1/4 daily dose to try to get my colon to work again. Within an hour I had a hot foot with numb toes. I had a burning pain in my calf all night and felt terrible the next day. I have found that I am not so much off balance since I stopped them and am not as weak. Can you give me an idea as to what you eat and how to detoxify myself.
Avatar f tn In my case it was only for 2 months, but I did have to increase aspirin to a full dose for a while. Later my doc reduced to two 81mg/day. I did not have precipitating event nor was I fatigued. My doc just felt it was time for another stress test before I moved. 8 years earlier the LAD was about 45% blocked. The mapping showed an area with less circ and she got me scheduled ASAP. I chose to be awake and saw and heard all.
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar f tn She has prescribed a low dose of Neurontin for a week and we are trying that. I have been on it since Thursday (100 mg 2x daily). I started it right in the middle of a flare up and within 30 minutes it had subsided, I have not had one since. As I told her, I am skeptical but time will tell as these flare ups come and go. Has anyone else tried Neurontin and did it work long term?
