a single dose of 120 ml was prescribed to "flush high levels of potassium" from the kidneys; advised to discontinue lisinopril and magnesium supplements; labwork to be done next day
This medication is used to treat a high level of potassium in your blood. Too much potassium in your blood can sometimes cause heart rhythm problems. Kayexalate (Sodium polystyrene) sulfonate works by helping your body get rid of extra potassium. It could increase bowel movement.
However, please talk to your doc/pharmacist for more information, take care & be well!
