Potassium orotate is a drug that takes part in the regulation of metabolism and stimulation of many processes in the body. Potassium orotate is used for various diseases, such as liver disease, atrial fibrillation, as well as for strenuous physical exertion.
The dosage regimen for physical exertion is very simple. The best result from taking potassium orotate is achieved with the help of additional intake of such drugs as: B vitamins, anabolic steroids, various mineral complexes, Riboxin. Take the drug either one hour before meals, or three to four - after, 0.5 g four to five times a day.
The entire course of taking potassium orotate is about a month, then take a break for two weeks and start taking the drug again.
In case of liver disease (the exception is cirrhosis, in which taking the drug is strictly prohibited), potassium orotate is used as directed by a doctor. It enhances the synthesis of albumin in the liver. The course of treatment depends on the stage of the disease and can last from 20 to 50 days. Take the drug 2-3 times a day at a dosage of 0.5 to 1.5 g per day for adults and 10-20 mg per day for children per 1 kilogram of body weight.
