There are no known significant interactions between the ingredients of Feosol, most common multivitamins and Trinessa. That said, vitamin C (in large doses) has the potential to increase the levels of circulating ethinyl estradiol from Trinessa if used for prolonged periods of time.

1 AnswerIf you are taking K-Tab, you should be careful about potassium levels in your diet. A potassium overdose can be potentially dangerous. You should be cautious about salt substitutes and low-salt products, which often contain large amounts of potassium. Also, be wary of drugs that may affect the amount of potassium in your body. These include angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, diuretics, bronchodilators, quinidine, digoxin and eplerenone. If you are taking K-Tab, it is a good idea to discuss all new drugs and major dietary changes with your doctor.
1 AnswerNausea and diarrhea are common side effects of K-Tab. Other potentially serious side effects include: confusion, fatigue, strange sensations on your skin, heavy legs, thirst, abdominal pain or bulging and discolored stool or vomit. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience an irregular heartbeat while taking K-Tab.
1 AnswerK-Tab should be taken whole. Do not crush or chew the tablet. Be aware of the possibility of serious side effects, such as irregular heartbeat, numbness, tingling and weakness. Tell your doctor immediately if you experience these effects.
1 AnswerK-Tab is one of the brands of potassium supplements. Its primary ingredient is potassium chloride. The primary use of K-Tab is the treatment of low potassium, a condition called hypokalemia. K-Tab can also offset potassium losses resulting from other drugs, such as diuretics. It comes as a tablet which you should take with a full glass of water near the time of a meal. If you are taking K-Tab, you should probably consult a doctor about a diet that contains an appropriate amount of potassium.
1 AnswerYou should only take K-Tab if you know you are potassium deficient. Do not take K-Tab if you have kidney failure, severe tissue damage, heart disease, hypertension, intestinal or gastric blockage or chronic diarrhea. Definitely do not take K-Tab if you have hyperkalemia, a condition in which you have too much potassium in your blood.

Nonfat and skim milk and yogurt are excellent sources of potassium (see below).
While the current recommendation is for healthy Americans to consume 4,700 milligrams of potassium daily, males are consuming only 3,200 milligrams daily, whereas females fall even shorter, consuming only 2,400 milligrams a day, on average. The good news is that potassium is found in a variety of foods, with vegetables, fruits, low fat dairy foods, and beans being potassium powerhouses:
- Potato, baked including skin, small, 738 mg
- White beans, ½ cup, 595 mg
- Yogurt, nonfat, plain, 579 mg
- Sweet Potato, baked with skin, medium, 542 mg
- Orange juice, 1 cup, 496 mg
- Halibut, cooked, 3 ounces, 490 mg
- Soybeans, cooked, ½ cup, 485 mg
- Cod, cooked, 3 ounces, 439 mg
- Banana, 1 medium, 422 mg
- Spinach, cooked, ½ cup, 370-419 mg
- Tomato sauce, ½ cup, 405 mg
- Milk, skim, 1 cup, 382 mg
- Apricots, dried, ¼ cup, 378 mg
- Soy milk, 1 cup, 372 mg
- Kidney beans, cooked, ½ cup, 358 mg
Fruit is one of the best sources of potassium. Most people know that bananas are a good source of potassium but there are so many other potassium packing fruits. To boost your intake of potassium, add these fruits to your rotation:
- Apricots (dried)
- Dates and figs
- Honeydew melon
- Oranges and orange juice
- Prune juice
- Raisins and dried plums (prunes)
Vegetables deliver a powerful potassium punch! Most people know a baked potato is a good source of potassium but there are many other veggie options. To boost your intake of potassium, add these high potassium veggies to your plate:
