Potassium Renal Failure Side Effect Reports


The following Potassium Renal Failure side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers.

This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Renal Failure, can occur, and what you can do about them.

A side effect could appear soon after you start Potassium or it might take time to develop.



Renal Failure

This Renal Failure side effect was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from US. A 70-year-old female patient (weight:NA) experienced the following symptoms/conditions: electrolyte imbalance.

  • Magnesium (Daily)
  • Neurontin (Daily)
When starting to take Potassium Chloride Extended-release (watson Laboratories) the consumer reported the following symptoms:
  • Renal Failure
The patient was hospitalized. These side effects may potentially be related to Potassium Chloride Extended-release (watson Laboratories).

Potassium Renal Failure Causes and Reviews


Healthy kidneys clean your blood by removing excess fluid, minerals, and wastes. They also make hormones that keep your bones strong and your blood healthy. But if the kidneys are damaged, they don't work properly. Harmful wastes can build up in your body. Your blood pressure may rise. Your body may retain excess fluid and not make enough red blood cells. This is called kidney failure.

If your kidneys fail, you need treatment to replace the work they normally do. The treatment options are dialysis or a kidney transplant. Each treatment has benefits and drawbacks. No matter which treatment you choose, you'll need to make some changes in your life, including how you eat and plan your activities. But with the help of health care providers, family, and friends, most people with kidney failure can lead full and active lives.
