Sando-K Effervescent


Sando-K Effervescent Tablets are used for the prevention and treatment of hypokalaemic states such as those associated with:

  • Use of drugs which can induce potassium depletion eg. frusemide, thiazide diuretics, corticosteroids, carbenoxolone and cardiac glycosides, especially in combination with diuretics;
  • Potassium loss resulting from severe diarrhoea, vomiting or fistulas;
  • Acid-base disturbances e.g. alkalosis, renal tubular acidosis, states in which there is aldosterone excess, Cushing syndrome;
  • Decreased intake of potassium e.g. malnutrition, alcoholism, some elderly patients with deficient diets;

Since SANDO-K Effervescent Tablets contain Cl- they may be used in the treatment of hypokalaemia associated with hypochloraemic alkalosis.
