Who should not take potassium supplement?

Potassium supplementation should only be taken as directed by a doctor and should not be taken by some people at all. If you are sensitive to products that contain aspirin or tartrazine, you may need to avoid potassium supplementation. Certain disorders of the digestive tract, kidneys and heart might also prevent you from taking extra potassium. If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medication, be sure your doctor is aware of it before you begin your potassium supplementation.
