The uses of Chlorvescent B/CRRNT include: This medication is a mineral supplement used to prevent or treat low amounts of potassium in the blood. A normal level of potassium in the blood is important so that your cells, nerves, heart, muscles, and kidneys work properly. Normal blood levels of potassium are usually achieved by eating a well-balanced diet. However, certain situations cause your body to lose potassium faster than you can replace it from your diet. These situations include treatment with certain "water pills" (diuretics), a poor diet, or certain medical conditions (e.g., severe diarrhea especially with vomiting).
Treatment of potassium deficiency (particularly hypochloremic or hypokalemic alkalosis) associated with diuretic and steroid therapy, vomiting and diarrhoea, ulcerative colitis, steatorrhoea, diabetes insipidus and uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, ileostomy or colostomy patients, cirrhosis and dietary insufficiency.
Dosage and Administration:
1 tablet in half a glass full of water per day is normally sufficient to correct potassium and chloride deficiencies. In more severe depletion, up to 4 tablets (56 mmol potassium and 32 mmol chloride) can be taken daily in divided doses in water.
