Micromedex has that information.

I can tell you that amphotericin B cholesteryl sulfate complex, diazepam, ergotamine tartrate and phenytoin are not compatible with potassium chloride.

Find out if your hospital supplies Micromedix on your computer system. This program will tell you what drugs and fluids are compatible with each other. I use this on an almost daily basis, and just used it last night. Turns out KCL, Mag Sulfate and Clindamycin are all compatible with each other. Sure saves a lot of time and worry when you have the right tools at work!
