Potassium chloride overdose symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Potassium chloride overdose symptoms


Avatar f tn One more thing, DO NOT OVERDO POTASSIUM SUPPLEMENTATION! Overdosing on potassium is very dangerous!!! HypERkalemia (too much potassium) is just as bad as hypOkalemia, if not moreso. Please work with your docs on this one and make sure your blood levels are being monitored. This isn't something you can take mega-doses of and just pee out the excess harmlessly; people can and do overdose on potassium!!!
Avatar f tn I needed 3 bags of fluid, 1bag of potassium chloride, and they literally told me they had to overdose me on zofran because I was so nauseous. They said it is a safe medicine and not to worry about the amount they gave me. Anyone else have this? If so, how are you coping? I'm excited to see if the meds I got can help me function.
Avatar f tn Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms Magnesium is a mineral responsible for 300 bodily processes. An anti-inflammatory mineral offering protection against illnesses like arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease, magnesium has been used to remedy problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, respiratory issues, and much more. But as you may suspect, just as upping magnesium intake can solve problems, a magnesium deficiency could lead to many of those same issues and much more.
4274823 tn?1388532698 It's reasonable to keep a close watch on vitamin B12, since, if I recall correctly, you were deficient in that as well and had increased your B12 food sources and started the supplement. Your sodium, potassium and chloride were good on the last check, so probably no reason to worry about those. Your magnesium was at 43% of the range last time, so probably not really needed again so soon.

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 read the labels of the bottled water you buy. some brands have minerals added like calcium chloride, magnesium sulfate and potassium bicarb that help from washing you out. otherwise you may cramp up a lot.
1797743 tn?1389217285 Thirst can mean not only lack of water but it can also mean that one is not getting enough nutrients and electrolytes. Magnesium, Potassium, Bicarbonate, Chloride and Sodium are some principle examples and that is one of the reasons magnesium chloride is so useful.
1916673 tn?1420236870 There are two different kinds of salts contained in blood and, in their appropriate volumes, they are essential to good health and life. The two salts are potassium chloride (KCl) and sodium chloride (NaCl). Chloride ions maintain blood volume, affect blood pressure and help control the acid-balance of the canine body. Chloride is reformed into hydrochloric acid in the stomach to assist in the digestion of food.

Avatar m tn Hi Rose, Symptoms of an magnesium chloride overdose include nausea, vomiting, flushing, low blood pressure, a slow heartbeat, arrythmia, drowsiness, coma, and death. Take the tablets and capsules with a full glass of water. In liquid form, may not conform to the recommended to the extended- or slow-release formulations of magnesium chloride in cap or pill form. They are specially formulated to dissolve slowly in the body.
Avatar f tn I have had the exact same symptoms as you. If you had any antibodies on your celiac test it may indicate gluten sensitivity. ie non celiac gluten sensitivity. Basically gluten and other food intolerances lead to leaky gut and to adrenal fatigue hence the low cortisol. To better understand this read these two books. Adrenal fatigue, 21st century illness by Dr. wilson and the Gluten effect by dr. vikki peterson.
499534 tn?1328707778 What type is best: potassium iodine only Where can you find it? This can be a tough one..... How to test for deficiency... scratch skin test and or hair analysis is best What are the many many health benefits of Iodine? MANY! There are soooo many benefits to Iodine.....did you know that if you take Lugols at the first sign of infection it can help to destroy viruses, bacteria, etc.? How about at the first signs of food poisoning to neutralize toxins?
Avatar m tn 8) CBC with Diff came back normal (if you need results, I can post) Testosterone was LOW at 186 ng/dl (range for adult male 241-827) Glucose, BUN, Creatinine, Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, CO2, Calcium, and Total Bili all normal.

1916673 tn?1420236870 These 2 drugs have helped to lower his BP but the Forticor can affect the electrolytes which is Doogan's case. His potassium is increasing.Presently, it is 6.5. So now they have stopped the Forticor medication in the hope that it was the drug doing this to him and not his failing kidneys. Prior to him going on the drug, Doogan did not have any shaking /tremors but since his potaasium is increasing he shakes a lot. Again reflective of it being the drug. I PRAY.
1358341 tn?1282213443 don't know is she has low levels of potassium. And don't know her levels in anything because blood analysis isn't complete. If there were some vitamin alimentary complement with potassium that I could be sure 100% good ? Glucosamine/chondrodin is good for arthritis: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=1+2175&aid=669 What is the name of your product ? There she woke up and went drinking. I'm very glad to have all of those advices.
1018470 tn?1251337123 I'm wondering if I could get to advice as to how much Naturthroid to start verses my Levothyroxine. I have looked up the conversion from Naturthroid's website, but everyone says to go slow. I just had blood work done last Thursday (2-28-13). I haven't gotten the lab report yet, but hoping I will from my doctor's office today. I know I'm probably asking to soon before you have my new labs, but I am wanting to get some good advice .
Avatar n tn Could be neurological Lyme disease. See www.LymeNet.org and here's a symptoms list for you. I have it and had a LOT of eye problems, sensitivity to light, etc. Very nasty bacteria once it gets into the central nervous system. You have to find a Lyme specialist, though. Doctors don't know about it or its co-infections, believe me.
Avatar n tn You might be having a rhythmic movement disorder, which more or less resembles the symptoms or even age related. Has your doctor done a sleep study? You need to continue the medication for couple of weeks as advised by your doctor and try to avoid trigger factors like alcohol, smoking and stress. It is better to consult a neurologist and get evaluated. Take care and updated on your thoughts and progress.
Avatar n tn I still have a ways to go before my stores are built up but I can tell you personally that iron deficiency anemia is not a walk in the park, and you do not have to have very low levels to begin having symptoms. Some people can go very low without symptoms while others will notice it below 20 ng/ul, which was my case. Ferritin is one of the lab values they test when someone complains of restless leg syndrome.
Avatar n tn I saw another post about atrial fibrillation and stomach gas possible association or connection. I too have the same thing so it may not be all in your head if your suspect this to be the case. Most dr.'s think your crazy or never heard of this when you even suggest it. Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned.
Avatar n tn SEVERE FATIGUE, nerve pain, difficulty walking, intenstinal pain, blurred vision, depression, SEVERE NAUSEOUSNESS, headaches, muscle weakness, dizziness, vertigo, hopelessness, etc. etc. etc. I am using a special diet from a book called "Patient Heal Thyself", which includes a lot of fresh, organic, whole foods. And I have a lot of support from friends and family to walk me through this trying experience.
Avatar n tn Glad to know I'm not going crazy but I have no other symptoms like a sinus infection, headaches or sore throat. Did have a couple of migraines recently (vision problems) which rarely occur otherwise. I'm due for a physical and I'll get it checked at that time.
Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been experiencing horrible symptoms. It seemed that the whole thing started as a sinus infection but then I went for a CT scan of sinuses and they were clear. I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much.
Avatar n tn Whenever I start another treatment I have a short period of relief. It always comes back...longest time without symptoms 10 days. Like eveyone else, I have thrown all makeup, lotions, and soaps away. Washed sheets, pillow cases, and put pillow in the dryer. This has become debilitating and I am becoming depressed. I have a high profile job and don't want to be seen because I look like I have some awful disease. Can anyone suggest a next step?
Avatar m tn 50 grams of vitamin C in sterile water IV bag with 2 mL of B complex, 2 mL B12, 2 mL folic acid, 2 mL pyridoxine, 5 mL calcium gluconate, 5 mL potassium chloride, 15 mL sodium bicarbonate (buffer), 5 mL magnesium sulfate When I am rolling, I do the first four twice a week, and the Vitamin C mix once a week. This summer I quit all IVs for the last half of the summer to give my veins a rest (I have done a lot of IVs for that ten months, so I was due).
Avatar f tn I have not been able to distinguish a common thread for the cause besides the symptoms and the temporary relief from ice. I hope there is a doctor out there, or a team of doctors, that is aware of this and will take the time to find the cause and cure of brachioradial pruritus. I've read that it is caused by one of two (or both) things: prolonged exposure to sun, and /or something with a nerve in the cervical spine.
