You know, that is a good question. I had pancreatitis last November and my potassium was low. I was in so much pain, I didn't even ask. But that will be a question to ask my new doctor. Thanks for bringing it up. kimmie1

low potassium:
•Fatigue
•Patient may experience problems such as Myalgia and muscular weakness
•Patient may experience hyponatremia and also may experience confused i.e. anxiety.
•Acme problem
•Skin related problems such as blistering, skin eruptions, dryness of skin etc.
•Temporary memory loss or problems such as weak memory etc.
•Patient is prone to heart related problems, such as heart deterioration.
•Digestive system also may get affected due to potassium deficiency leading to hypertension, improper sleep, nervous system deterioration, depression, constipation etc.
•In some cases patient may experience ringing/noise in ear.

as long as you have no side effects from the inactive ingrediants (very not likely to get these) then it will be very beneficial for you.
