About Effer-K® - Effervescent Potassium Citrate

Effer-K® - Effervescent Potassium Citrate -Product Information

Efferk IllustrationEffer-K® is an effervescent liquid prescription potassium supplement in tablet form. Simply drop the tablet into a glass of water, wait one minute for the tablet to dissolve, then enjoy the non-carbonated beverage.

Effer-K® is the combination of potassium bicarbonate and citric acid as an effervescent tablet. When placed in water, or other aqueous liquids, the citric acid and potassium bicarbonate react. The effervescent reaction provides potassium as potassium citrate in a slightly acidic solution. The initial bicarbonate molecule is bubbled off as carbon dioxide and water. Potassium citrate and water remain. Potassium citrate is the type of potassium found naturally in fruit, which is why Effer-K® does not have the harsh, salty taste associated with other forms of potassium.  

Effer-K® is now available in 25 mEq, 20mEq and 10 mEq doses

Most physicians prescribe potassium chloride in tablet form in 10mEq and 20mEq doses. Effer-K® is a great substitute for a solid KCl potassium tablet or KCl capsule.
