Beacon-K

Description

Beacon K is slow-release preparation and contains 600mg of Potassium Chloride.

 

Properties

Potassium is the predominant intracellular cation where sodium content is low. In contrast, sodium predominates in extracellular fluid where the potassium content is low. These sodium-potassium concentration gradients are necessary for the conduction of nerve impulses in such specialized tissues as the heart, brain and skeletal muscle to maintain normal renal function and acid base balance. High intracellular potassium concentrations are necessary for cellular metabolism.

 

Indications

Potassium depletion due to long-term administration of potassium depleting drugs.

 

Contraindications

Renal failure, plasma potassium concentration above 5 mmol/litre.

 

Side effects

Nausea, vomiting.

 

Precautions

Intestinal stricture, hiatus hernia.

 

Dosage

1 tablet to 2 tablets three times daily or as directed by physician.

Store in dry place below 30C.
