100 to 150 meq q day. When treating diseases such as renal tubular acidosis or kidney stones, the daily dosages are 100 to 150 meq total per day. Dosages should be taken with food.
Why. If you are treating a specific disease potassium citrate can be obtained by rx. I know there are multiple websites but I do not know one that should be used. I am curious why why do you want to buy it?
Depends. Urocit-k is useful in the treatment of recurrent kidney stones and its dose will vary depending on the clinical situation. The typical starting dose is 30meq per day, which is divided into two (15meq) or three (10meq) doses. The max dose is 100meq/day. The dose will depend on renal function, response measured through urine collection studies, and patient compliance. Please check with your doctor.
Inhibits crystals. Urocit k (potassium citrate) alters urine acid levels and provides citrate which binds to calcium so it can't complex with oxalate to form the most common form of kidney stone.
See details. It used to treat a low serum potassium concentration.
What for. The recipe for gunpowder uses potassium nitrate, if you need it for chemistry, buy it from a chemistry asupply house.
YES. Too much potassium citrate can cause cardiac arrythmias or abnormal heart beats that can cause severe problems. Blleding from the GI tract can aslo occur.
24-48 hours. 24-48 hours if the combination is going to be effective.
Different salts. Both are salts of potassium. One contains carbonate the other citrate. Potassium is the primary ingredient in both n.
Difference. Potassium citrate (kc) can cause the person taking it to develop a metabolic alkalosis. It also increases the urinary excretion of oxalate. Kc works better in patients with crohn's disease. Potassium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) (kb) can be used to treat a metabolic acidosis, without causing an alkalosis and reduces urinary oxalate excretion. Please see your doctor to decide which one is best for you.
Rare. There is a always a potential for severe life threatening reaction that can cause severe skin rash that would include hives and other skin manifestations.
