Discussions that mention potassium

Open to All Other Health Topics board


My boyfriend has to take potassium, and as everyone knows, that stuff tastes AWFUL! He can't swallow pills so he has to dissolve them in water and then drink the stuff after its dissolved. Is there anything we can mix it in so he won't have that heavy sea water taste in his mouth?
I am not sure it is wise to dissolve the potassium pills in water. Have your boyfriend ask his doctor for a prescription for "liquid potassium", it comes in flavors (grape & cherry) . Still a rough dose to take but you hold your nose, swallow it down, grab big glass of water and chug-a-lug, then go ahhhhhhhhhhhh exhale in hopes the bad taste will go away!!!
