Review: could Potassium chloride cause Atrial fibrillation (Atrial fibrillation/flutter)?
Summary: Atrial fibrillation is found among people who take Potassium chloride, especially for people who are male, 60+ old, have been taking the drug for 2 - 5 years, also take medication Aspirin, and have Atrial fibrillation/flutter.
We study 942 people who have side effects while taking Potassium chloride from FDA and social media. Among them, 17 have Atrial fibrillation. Find out below who they are, when they have Atrial fibrillation and more.

Potassium chloride has active ingredients of potassium chloride. It is often used in hypokalemia. (latest outcomes from 1,216 Potassium chloride users)
Atrial fibrillation (fibrillation of the muscles of the atria of the heart) has been reported by people with high blood pressure, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, multiple myeloma. (latest reports from 87,267 Atrial fibrillation patients)
On Apr, 7, 2015: 942 people reported to have side effects when taking Potassium chloride. Among them, 20 people (2.12%) have Atrial Fibrillation.
