Questions to the study
Hello, I was diagnosed with hyperkalemia, and have started a round of antibiotics to treat an abscess tooth. In the past i have taken a probiotic with my antibiotic but am hesitant in doing so as I am not sure if it would spike my hyperkalemia.
I have been taking melatonin for a while and the potassium in my blood is too high. Does someone know if I can reverse this problem? If so, do I have to stop the melatonin completely and how long would it take to lower the potassium in my blood? Thank you!
