K-Lyte is in the class of drugs called potassium supplements which are used to treat low potassium conditions (hypokalemia) or prevent them from occurring. Potassium is the principal positive ion inside of the cells of the body and is used in nerve conduction, muscle contraction, and normal kidney function. A deficiency of potassium causes weakness, fatigue, heart rhythm problems, paralysis, and kidney dysfunction. Nausea, vomiting, gas, stomach upset, or diarrhea may occur. See How to Use for ways to reduce stomach upset. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.


Take this medication with a full glass of water. • You may take K-Lor with food or milk to lessen stomach upset. • Do not crush, chew, or break the tablets or capsules. Swallow them whole. They are specially formulated to release medicine slowly in the body. If you have problems swallowing, ask your doctor about other forms of potassium. • Mix the powder, granule, or liquid form of this medicine with at least 4 ounces (one-half cup) of water or juice. Stir the mixture thoroughly and drink it right away. Do not use any of these forms of K-Lor without first mixing them with a liquid. • Do not use a salt substitute while taking K-Lor unless your doctor has told you to. Salt substitutes may contain potassium. You may get too much potassium and experience side effects if you use these products.
