 Drug Research: Bodybuilding Drugs

 

Slow K:

Substance: Potassium Chloride 

Slow release tablets. This drug is indicated for the treatment of potassium depletion. This could be caused by disease or in the case of some bodybuilders it is caused by the use of strong diuretics. This is a strong prescription potassium drug. Many body builders use it several days before and the day of a bodybuilding contest. Very often bodybuilders use strong diuretics to get ripped up. The users of these drugs cause the body to lose a great deal of sodium and potassium. With the loss of potassium, which helps keep water balance in the muscles, the muscles usually are left very flat looking. Not only that but they can tie up into severe cramps when flexed. The use of diuretics can cause the loss of up to 3000 mg of potassium per day. This will wipe out reserves quickly and cause the cramping. In an attempt to keep this from occurring, many use Slow K. It can keep the muscles looking full and prevent painful cramping that makes posing impossible. Unfortunately this drug can be very dangerous. If the athlete gets too much of it, it can cause cardiac arrest. This is because potassium is responsible for maintaining heart functions as well. The most popular way of using Slow K has been to take one tablet every eight hours, for a total of three, daily, if the bodybuilder is suffering cramping. If not, they usually use one tablet per day just to keep the muscles from getting too flat. Slow K is used only when the athlete is taking a diuretic like Lasix, and only for three or four days; the three preceding and day of a show in most cases. Other side effects may occur like vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. Also it can cause bleeding ulcers in the gastrointestinal tract. This happens with prolonged use though. Dosages should be individualized by a doctor because of the side effects. It has been available on the market, but most often athletes get this drug from their doctor. It usually costs about $1 per tablet.
