Nomax Exhibits Effer-K at the AAFP FMX in New Orleans

The Effer-K team has made it home after exhibiting at the AAFP FMX conference in New Orleans!  AAFP is always a busy show for us and this year was no exception. We gave out 123 Effer-K voucher booklets (that allow patients to receive 1 box of free Effer-K at any pharmacy). Many physicians stopped by our booth, as they do every year, to tell us how much they love Effer-K. We are always happy to talk to these loyal fans.

In addition to the Effer-K-loving practitioners, we met several physicians who had never even heard of Effer-K. These physicians are always skeptical when we explain that it is a palatable potassium supplement, so we offer samples of Effer-K at our booth for doubters. The skeptics often become instant fans after trying the shot.

Once practitioners taste Effer-K they often follow up with questions about what types of drinks it can be dissolved in. Since Nomax makes an Unflavored Effer-K, we tell them it is virtually undetectable when dissolved in any ingestible liquid. One physician suggested (in jest) that it could even be dissolved in the popular New Orleans Hurricane drink. How’s that for a physician recommendation? 

We acquired several new Effer-K fans at this show. We even met some medical directors of nursing homes who decided they wanted to add Effer-K to their formulary. This show was definitely a huge success for us and we plan on returning next year! We look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s AAFP FMX which will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA – September 25th thru Sept. 27th.

Effer-K can be taken on a low-carbohydrate diet

We were recently contacted by a physician who wanted to know how many carbohydrates are in Effer-K. He wanted to know if Effer-K could be prescribed to his patients who are on a low-carbohydrate diet. We were happy to inform the physician that Effer-K is an excellent potassium supplement for patients on a low-carbohydrate diet. Effer-K is available in a variety of flavors including Cherry Vanilla, Orange Cream, Lemon Citrus and Cherry Berry as well as Unflavored for patients who want to avoid artifical sweeteners, flavorings and dyes. Not only is Effer-K low in carbohydrates, it’s also low in calories. The following chart shows the calories and carbohydrates in each of our flavors and doses.

Are you or your patients getting tired of orange flavored effervescent potassium?

Are you or your patients taking effervescent potassium citrate but tired of the orange flavor?  Did you know that Effer-K is the only effervescent potassium citrate available in flavors other than orange? Effer-K 25 mEq is available in a variety of flavors: Orange (of course), Lemon Citrus and Cherry Berry. Effer-K 20 mEq is available in Orange Cream and Effer-K 10 mEq is available in Cherry Vanilla.

Do you or your patients not like any flavor at all?  Effer-K is also the only effervescent potassium citrate available in an unflavored form. Unflavored Effer-K can be dissolved in any beverage of choice.  Typically patients dissolve Effer-K in some type of juice but other beverages will work as well.  We have heard of patients who dissolve Effer-K in Coke. We even have dissolved Effer-K in Ensure (a nutrition drink) inspired by a doctor’s request. And, yes, it does dissolve.  It just takes a few minutes.

So if you are looking for an alternative to the Orange flavored potassium citrate, give Effer-K a try.   For physician or patient samples, please visit our web site.
