Potassium Bromide

Potassium bromide is a salt indicated for the treatment of epilepsy. It is used in veterinary medicine as a hypnotic and sedative in cattle, horses, sheep, and pigs. It is also used as an adjunct treatment of colic and tetany in horses and acetonemia in cattle. In dogs, potassium bromide is used as an anticonvulsant to treat seizure disorders. In addition to pharmaceutical use, potassium bromide is an active ingredient in two registered pesticide products with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Potassium bromide is an inorganic salt that dissociates into its potassium and bromide ions in aqueous solutions. The mechanism of action of bromide has not been clearly defined. It is proposed that bromide may aid in controlling seizures through hyperpolarization of neuronal cell membranes by preferential movement across gamma-amino butyric (GABA)- activated chloride channels, leading to stabilization and decreased sensitivity of epileptic foci.

Affygility Solutions has an occupational exposure limit (OEL) and control band assignment for this active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). This monograph also contains the acceptable daily exposure (ADE) value.
