Without Medical Advice, Some Patients Are Self-Medicating With Potassium Citrate Pills

Potassium citrate is usually only prescribed to patients with Renal Tubular Acidosis, who are at higher risk of forming kidney stones. However, many patients in our community have been self-medicating with potassium pills, in hopes of reaping similar benefits. ​

​Without medical advice, patients may be putting themselves at risk of hyperkalemia, a potentially life-threatening condition. Advise your patients to obtain potassium from natural sources such as banana and cantaloupe instead*!​
