    Question Potassium Overdose

    A few months ago, my friend's closest family friend died from a potassium overdose, from a certain type of potassium pill his doctor prescribed him. How is this possible?

    Potassium overdose is known as hyperkalemia. Heres a couple links explaining more information.
