Consideration and recomendation
Potassium is well-known for being safe for most people when taken by mouth in amounts of up to 100 mEq of total potassium, or when given intravenously (by IV) by medical professionals. In some people, potassium can cause stomach upset, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, or intestinal gas. However, too much potassium is not safe and can cause feelings of burning or tingling, generalized weakness, paralysis, mental confusion, low blood pressure, irregular heart rhythm, or death.
The dosage varies for reasons for taking Potassium. The adequate intake of potassium is 4.7 grams per day for most adults, 4.7 grams per day for pregnant females, and 5.1 grams per day for lactating women. But it is wise to consult your doctor for your suitable dosage.
