Dipotassium Chlorazepate
A water-soluble benzodiazepine derivative effective in the treatment of anxiety. It has also muscle relaxant and anticonvulsant actions.

Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate
A widely used anti-inflammatory agent isolated from the licorice root. It is metabolized to glycyrrhetic acid, which inhibits 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase and other enzymes involved in the metabolism of corticosteroids. Therefore, glycyrrhizic acid, which is the main and sweet component of licorice, has been investigated for its ability to cause hypermineralocorticoidism with sodium retention and potassium loss, edema, increased blood pressure, as well as depression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system.

Dipotassium Oxalate
Salts and esters of OXALIC ACID.

Dipotassium Salt Succimer
A mercaptodicarboxylic acid used as an antidote to heavy metal poisoning because it forms strong chelates with them.

Dipotassium Salt, Fluorescein
A phthalic indicator dye that appears yellow-green in normal tear film and bright green in a more alkaline medium, such as the aqueous humor, and is used therapeutically as a diagnostic aid in corneal injuries and corneal trauma. It has been approved by FDA for use in externally applied drugs and cosmetics. (From Merck Index, 12th ed; American Medical Association Drug Evaluations; 1995, p2275)

Dipotassium Salt, Gossypol
Poisonous pigment found in cottonseed and potentially irritating to gastrointestinal tract.

Dipotassium, Clorazepate
A water-soluble benzodiazepine derivative effective in the treatment of anxiety. It has also muscle relaxant and anticonvulsant actions.
