Micro-K Extencaps are pale orange, hard gelatin capsules, each containing 600 mg of dispersible, small crystalline particles of potassium chloride (equivalent to 8 mEq K), monogrammed Micro-K and AHR/5720.

Micro-K 10 Extencaps are pale orange and opaque white, hard gelatin capsules, each containing 750 mg of dispersible, small crystalline particles of potassium chloride (equivalent to 10 mEq K) monogrammed Micro-K 10 and AHR/5730.

Each particle of potassium chloride (KCl) is microencapsulated with a polymeric coating which allows for the controlled release of potassium and chloride ions over an eight-to ten-hour period.The dispersibility of the microcapsules and the controlled release of ions are intended to minimize the likelihood of high localized concentrations of potassium chloride and resultant mucosal ulceration within the gastrointestinal tract.

The polymeric coating forming the microcapsules functions as a water-permeable membrane.Fluids pass through the membrane and gradually dissolve the potassium chloride within the microcapsules. The resutting potassium chloride solution slowly diffuses outward through the membrane.

The inactive ingredients present are edible ink, ethylcellulose, FD&C Blue2 Aluminum Lake, FD&C YeHow 6, gelatin, magnesium stearate, sodium lauryl sulfate, titanium dioxide. May contain FD&C Red 40 and Yellow 6 Aluminum Lakes.
