From this study (1 month ago):
I have taken this for gerds, it gave me instant relief, quit taking it and only took it when needed. In between the absense of carafate until recently all my blood work results were normal including potassium. I recently had a need to used carafate more frequently and during this time I went for my blood work again only to find my potassium level was a little low 3.1. I was prescribed some potassium capaules and after 10 days went for another blood test and it came back the same, and I did use the carafate during these 10 days.
