Micro-K Drug Description
Micro-K® Extencaps® capsules / Micro-K® 10
EXTENCAPS®
(Potassium Chloride Extended-release Capsules, USP)
600 mg (8 mEq K)/750 mg (10 mEq K)
DRUG DESCRIPTION
Micro-K® Extencaps® capsules and Micro-K® 10 Extencaps® capsules
are oral dosage forms of microencapsulated potassium chloride containing 600
and 750 mg, respectively, of potassium chloride USP equivalent to 8 and 10 mEq
of potassium.
Dispersibility of potassium chloride (KCl) is accomplished by microencapsulation and a dispersing agent. The resultant flow characteristics of the KCl microcapsules and the controlled release of K+ ions by the microcapsular membrane are intended to avoid the possibility that excessive amounts of KCl can be localized at any point on the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract.
Each crystal of KCl is microencapsulated by a patented process with an insoluble polymeric coating which functions as a semi-permeable membrane; it allows for the controlled release of potassium and chloride ions over an eight-to-ten-hour period. Fluids pass through the membrane and gradually dissolve the potassium chloride within the micro-capsules. The resulting potassium chloride solution slowly diffuses outward through the membrane. Micro-K® and Micro-K® 10 are electrolyte replenishers. The chemical name of the active ingredient is potassium chloride and the structural formula is KCl. Potassium chloride USP occurs as a white, granular powder or as colorless crystals. It is odorless and has a saline taste. Its solutions are neutral to litmus. It is freely soluble in water and insoluble in alcohol.
The inactive ingredients are edible ink, ethylcellulose, FD&C blue #2 aluminum lake, FD&C yellow #6, gelatin, magnesium stearate, sodium lauryl sulfate, titanium dioxide. May contain FD&C red #40 and yellow #6 aluminum lakes.Last reviewed on RxList: 6/19/2007
