Slow Release Sodium Tablets Description

Your doctor can prescribe Slow Release Sodium Tablets if a blood test has shown your sodium levels are abnormally low. This may occur for numerous reasons, including you have had severe vomiting or diarrhea, you take ‘water’ pills, you have become dehydrated, you have kidney or liver disease, you have an underactive thyroid, or hyponatremia as a result of SIADH (syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion). Sodium is an essential electrolyte that regulates the pressure and flow of fluids between your blood and the tissues of your body as well as maintaining normal nerve and muscle function.

Taking Sodium Chloride Improves Levels of this Essential Electrolyte

When taken orally with water as directed, the active ingredient called Sodium Chloride will help to replace the natural sodium chloride your body has lost due to hyponatremia or certain meds you may be taking or using such as antidepressants, pain meds, or diuretics that increase fluid levels and dilute the natural Sodium Chloride in your body. Depending on current levels of sodium in your blood, your doctor may have you stay in hospital for treatment until a dosage has been worked out by tracking how much fluid is going in and how much fluid is being expelled.

Conditions Treated by Slow Release Sodium Tablets

Among other actions or conditions that cause an imbalance of sodium in your body, hyponatremia is associated with SIADH. This condition causes your body to produce too much antidiuretic hormone (ADH), a hormone that your posterior pituitary gland releases to signal your kidneys to increase water absorption so your urinary output is decreased. As a result of retaining more fluid, your sodium levels drop and you may experience cramping, nausea, and vomiting.

Before Slow Release Sodium Tablets is Prescribed

Ask your doctor if Slow Release Sodium Tablets are safe to take if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain to your doctor other medical conditions and allergies you have and list any Rx and OTC drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This will help determine if Slow Release Sodium Tablets is the right medicine for you.

Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medications without consulting with your doctor first. Keep Slow Release Sodium Tablets and other drugs out of children’s reach and never share with others. Keep all lab and doctor appointments to monitor sodium levels and make any needed adjustments.
