Several prescription medications can induce potassium depletion, including aspirin, laxatives, trisalicylate (a pain medication), colchicine, corticosteroids, non-potassium sparing diuretics (such as thiazide diuretics), and sodium bicarbonate.
The botanical Glycyrrhiza glabra can result in potassium loss. Although it more commonly occurs with long-term use of more than one gram glycyrrhizin daily, some individuals can experience signs of potassium loss with lower amounts.
ACE inhibitors (captopril, enalapril, ramipril, etc.) can produce potassium retention by inhibiting aldosterone in the adrenal glands. Potassium supplementation concurrently with ACE inhibitors and potassium-sparing diuretics (spironolactone, amiloride, triamterene, etc.) should be undertaken with caution to prevent excessive potassium levels in the body.
Gas, bloating, or diarrhea may occur in some individuals taking magnesium supplements. This can occur at varying amounts depending on the individual and resolves when the amount is reduced.
