I use Sando-K to raise low Potassium levels which I suffer from on a frequent basis due to ill health. Not only does it help to raise the levels of Potassium it helps with the aches and pains you get especially in the legs, and I always feel better after finishing the course of medication. I do sometime need more than one prescription of it if my Potassium levels have been very low, but I know after taking the medication my Potassium will be within the save range of 3.3-5.5 which is monitored with a blood test. I would certainly recommend this medication for low Potassium.
