Effects of potassium on electrocardiographic and serum electrolyte changes induced by chlorpromazine and GO-3315 in experimental animals
KC Kotia, OP Garg, Khalsa Amrit, RK Joshi
The present study incorporates the effects of potassium chloride on various electrocardiographic end serum electrolyte changes produced by chlorpromazine and GO-3315. Both the drugs when administered with potassium, increase the P R and Q R S interval while decrease the QT interval.
Abnormal ventricular complexes do not occur when both the drugs are given with potassium in contrast t o the drugs when given alone. Both the drugs have insignificant affect on serum Na+, Cl- and Ca++ but decrease the serum K+ levels.
