Drugs causing hyperkalemia mnemonic


I modified the K BANK mnemonic and added more to it to cover a few more drugs.
The mnemonic for drugs causing hyperkalemia is: K BANK Digs, cycles, sucks, self help (Sulf hep!)

K - Potassium sparing diuretics (Obviously!)
B - Non selective beta blockers
K - Potassium supplements

Digs - Digoxin
Cycles - Cyclosporine
Sucks - Succinylcholine
Sulf - Sulfonamides, Trimethoprim
Hep - Heparin

That's all!
