How To Treat Potassium Deficiency?
So yesterday I was given a prescription by a doctor, there are 2 names of drugs and the one I forgot, but the other one I remember, I guess if the drug try to use it with what drug? Thank you
Hello Sukma, Thank you for the question.
Hypokalemia is a condition when potassium levels in the blood are lower than normal. This condition can be experienced by anyone with varying severity. Mild hypokalemia usually does not cause symptoms, but if it appears, symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, constipation, weakness, tingling, muscle cramps. In severe hypokalemia, sufferers can experience symptoms of heart rhythm disorders, stopping breathing, paralytic ileus, and paralysis. Handling this condition also depends on the severity. In mild hypokalemia, the doctor will advise sufferers to consume food sources that contain potassium and potassium supplements, but in severe hypokalemia, the sufferer will be advised to undergo treatment in a hospital and the doctor will give a potassium infusion to restore potassium levels.
I'm sorry I can't give further explanation because there are some potassium supplement products that can be prescribed by a doctor. In addition, mecobalamin drugs (containing vitamin B12) can also be consumed with several types of drugs. Therefore, you should re-consult with your treating doctor so that you receive the right medicine that suits your condition. Make sure you buy medicines with a doctor's prescription so you don't receive the wrong medicine.
Hopefully this information helps you.
