How much potassium chloride is appropriate?
My mom is in the ICU after a small brain aneurysm. She is doing alright but she is getting 200 ml/hr of 1.3% potassium chloride in .9% sodium chloride solution. Is this the proper dose for a 50 year old female weighing approx 92 Kg?
Thanks! The Dr. also confirmed this when I finally got to speak to him.
  Yes, "... Usual dose - Infusion: 40 mEq/Litre of IV solution administered at a rate to deliver 40-200 mEq potassium/day ..."

It is in the normal range, but you left off one important piece of information and no medical individual will be able to answer your question unless you give the blood potassium level.

The medication is right on target ...
Magnesium Chloride Deicer vs Supplement?
what's the difference?

I have this stuff at my house called "FreezGard 100% Magnesium Chloride Ice Melt" ( 3rd one from the bottom) at my house. It says it's 100% Magnesium Chloride.

I noticed Magnesium Chloride is also sold in supplement form (

I was wondering if its safe to take the deicer in small dosages to replace the dietary supplement. it sounds wrong, but just curious.
Here's some more facts.
  Taking any single element supplement is not a good idea under any circumstances, unless it is for a well supervised therapeutic reason by a practitioner. Nature does not package nutrients as individual nutrients for a very good reason. There is always interaction that is required for nutrients to be utilized properly by the body. Magnesium and Calcium are absorbed by the body in the jejunum and only when the pH of the chyme from the stomach is low enough. Which ever of these nutrients is required for the body, it decides how much it needs and absorbs that only. If you take one or the other of these, out of balance, you can create deficiencies.

Balance is the key to health in the body. Chemically made nutrients are toxic to the body and generally rejected, while also damaging the DNA of your cells. Quantum physics experiments have shown us how this happens and that the body has an incredible sensory ability to determine nutrients from toxins.

Good luck to you
can you get high off oxybutynin?
  No... it's an antidiuretic/antispasmodic: all it does is make it difficult to pee

It's prescribed mostly for people with mild bladder incontinence, urinary-tract spasms or bedwetting problems.

Can having too much sodium chloride therapy cause hypokalemia?
I become severely dehydrated on a daily basis due to other issues. but I have so far found a link that i only get hypokalemia when i'm on steriods or sodium chloride...
Is this theory accurate, or is it just coincidence?
What is the difference between potassium chloride an potassium bicarbonate?
In terms of healthy balance of bodily electrolytes, I'm not sure what difference there is between the two. Is it as simple as potassium chloride is the combination of the electrolytes potassium + chloride while potassium bicarbonate is the combination of the electrolytes potassium + bicarcarbonate? I'm not sure if it breaks down that simply.
  Yes, it actually is that simple. Potassium bonds very well to both chloride and bicarbonate. Potassium has a +1 charge, while both chloride and bicarbonate have a -1 charge.

Check out this site for a detailed description of these three electrolytes and their effect on the body:

Can you safely take IV Fluids (Sodium Chloride) orally?
Can you take IV Fluids (Sodium Chloride) straight from the bag orally without any health risks?
Just wanted to know as a survival technique when you have no water left but IV bags are available
I bought some Magnesium Chloride Liquid from NutriCology and was wondering if it can be used in an IV as well?
I do hydrogen peroxide therapy in IV form and Magnesium Chloride is suggested with this. I was just wondering if what i bought will work?
  Provided you balance the osmotic pressure it should be fine, although I'm not sure what the maximum concentration for the molarity of MgCl as opposed to NaCl can be.

Rite Aid saline solution for cleaning piercing?
I just got my ear pierced again today after the hole closed up and I no longer have any of that ear care antiseptic from Claire's (which I heard isn't that great anyways). I just wanted to know if the saline solution I got from Rite Aid is good for cleaning my piercing. I thought it would just be salt and water but in the contents section, it says: A sterile, isotonic, buffered solution that contains boric acid, sodium borate, potassium chloride, sodium chloride, preserved with polyaminopropyl (0.00003%) and edetate disodium (0.025%).

I was just wondering if all those extra things besides sodium chloride is good to use on my ear or if I should return it.

I also have some bactine spray but I heard not to use that either.

  Use coarse sea salt and warm water. ( I have my ears, my navel and my eyebrow pierced )
This is best to use. Dissolve about 2 teaspoons in a coffee mug of warm to hot water. Dip a cotton ball in the water and clean the back and front of the piercing. The best way to do this ( after the piercing heals ) is to take the earring out and clean both back and front and the post before putting it back in. And this is all you need

2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
Coffee mug of warm or hot water
Cotton balls or Q-Tips
is it safe to take protonix with oxybutynin? HELP?
is it?? protonix is for acid reflux and oxbutynin is for bladder spasms.
  Yes it is ok to take one with the other. IF you are really worried about taking them at the same time try taking one(preferably the protonix) in the morning and then take the oxybutyin in the evening. But if you have more concerns than just taking them together you might want to discuss it with your doctor. I work in a nursing home and alot of my residents are on both of those meds together.
Potassium citrate and potassium chloride?
If someone has been on Potassium citrate (urocit-k) for 9 years (for Cystinuria/Kidney stones), why would a doctor have them to start taking both the potassium citrate and the potassium chloride, together? Especially if that person has developed High blood pressure?

  According to Wikipedia, you need a total of 2,000 milligrams of potassium and 2,400 grams of sodium a day. Do the math, find out how much you need.

is this a good alternative to coffee?
For now, I'm thinking that instead of the caffeine in coffee to give me that pick-me-up, I'm drinking some de-ionised water from Whole Foods with electrolytes infused. The electrolytes are potassium bicarbonate, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride. It's almost like a Gatorade without the extra sugary stuff. Is this a good alternative, do you think?
  Considering the addictive quality of coffee and the very acidic effects that it has on the body that regularly consumes it, ... I'd say that water, (even tap water), is a much better choice to go with, .. although personally I'd much prefer to avoid drinking tap water, due to the chlorine and flouride that it is treated with. .. not to mention the pharmaceutical drugs that are present at low amounts in a lot of municipal water these days from recycling of sewage water.

I like the other suggestion you received to drink green tea or a form of it in water. It will provide you with some caffein if you like that and will also provide you with some very good health benefits, such as anti-cancer effects.

Note, .. that so often a tall glass of water will go a long way towards satisfying both hunger pangs and a need for an energy boost. .. The afternoon low energy blues that many typically experience on the job is very easily remedied by flushing out the liver and kidneys with a good dose of water.
Are 1,250 mg of Ammonium Chloride and 570 mg of Sodium Citrate dangerous?
I usually robotrip using a certain product (whose only active ingredient is DXM) that ran out at the local store. Instead I bought another cough syrup that in each 5 mg has:
diphenydramine HCL (12.5 mg)
DXM HBR (15 mg)
pseudoephedrine hcl (30 mg)
ammonium chloride (125 mg)
sodium citrate (57 mg)
menthol (1 mg)

I'd usually take it so I'd get about 150 mg of DXM, but that means I'd get 1,250 mg of sodium citrate and 570 mg of sodium citrate, which I've never dealt with before. Would those 2 get me really sick.. and not be worth taking?
  Ammonium Chloride is used as an expectorant, and the LD50 (lethal dose for 50% of the population) is 1650mg/kg. So unless you weigh under 1.5 pounds, you should be OK with 1250 mg.

There are three "sodium citrates," but trisodium citrate is the one usually meant when using the term.
Taken orally, it's used as an antacid. It is also used as tart-tasting food additive, including in some Ocean Spray juices.
It's generally considered harmless, unless you do something like eat a brick of it.
  Beware, starsnatcher, if you are not already ill or dead. Check your math. If you consume 10 doses, simply add a zero on the end of each ingredient. If the LD50, that is the average lethal dose, of Ammonium Chloride is 1650mg and you take 1250mg.. you risk death every time you robotrip. Are you feeling healthy today? I wonder what would make anybody intelligent enough to figure this out want to do this more than once? Maybe you could use your smarts to be a doctor.
Is there any colonoscopy prep one can take without taking Bisacodyl tablets?
Looking for a colonoscopy prep without having to take Bisycodyl Tablets. Also without the polyethylene glycole, sodium bicaronate,
sodium chloride, polyethylene glycol 3350, and potassium chloride, as I can't tolerate them. :-(
Thanks for the prompt responses...I'm seeing my gastro doc next week and will inquire about these alternatives!
  Fleet Phosho Soda (or generic) the active ingredients are Monobasic Sodium Phosphate Monohydrate, 7.2 g and Dibasic Sodium Phosphate Heptahydrate, 2.7 g

It is a 1.5 oz bottle and you take 2 doses 4 to 5 hours apart. The instructions call for it to be mixed in an 8 oz clear beverage. It is real salty so I have tried it with margarita mix and chugged it. I usually immediately follow it with Gatorade ot PowerAde so as to not deplete my electrolytes. I have also chugged the bottle straight (like a shot) and then chased it with a clear flavored liquid.

There is a warning if you already have heart disease or kidney failure. DO NOT cheat on the clear diet or beverages because it works by drawing water to your intestines. Remember to drink lots of clear liquid, eat Jell-O and stay close to the commode. If you consume the clear diet you will be fine.

Everyone I know says this is the least disgusting of the preps.

  Sounds really weird, but I have heard urine helps with the burn, you might search to see if that is true or not
EXPLAIN: "Push calcium chloride, it'll fix the heart block." (from House MD)?
What exactly is a "heart block" and how does calcium chloride fix it?

My guess is that a heart block an obstruction in one of the valves inside the heart, is this right?
  No, a heart block is an electrical problem.

Another example of how bad that show is.

Calcium hasn't been commonly used in emergent cardiac situations in close to 20 years. Unless the patient is KNOWN to have low calcium, it just isn't used.
accidentally drank dristan nasal spray?
i was goofing around with my friend and he sprayed me in the mouth with dristan nasal spray and i swallowed a fair amount. the med ingredients are Phenylephrine HCl , Pheniramine Maleate and the non-medical ingredients are alcohol, benzalkonium chloride, cellulose, eucalyptol, menthol, purified water, sodium chloride, sodium phosphate and thimerosal.

What should i do? i feel fine
  alright, so your nasal and you throat are connected. have you ever noticed that when you have a stuffy nose and you breathe in, you can feel yourself swallowing it? swallowing something that's taking the same path from a different starting point wont do anything to you. hope i've helped. lets hope this doesn't happen again with something dangerous. good luck =]
